The Judith Caldwell Miller Endowed Scholarship (SM6206)

The Judith Caldwell Miller Endowed Scholarship honors a Texas State professor who taught the English Romantic Movement, History of the English Language, British literature, and first-year composition from 1971 until her death in 1980. Also keenly interested in Women’s Studies, Professor Miller helped develop that program at Texas State and was one of the first faculty members to teach the Images of Women course. In the late 1970s, Professor Miller was recognized for both her scholarly and administrative talents when she was appointed Assistant to the Vice President of Academic Affairs. All who knew her admired her strong will, ironic humor, and dedication to teaching. The Judith Caldwell Miller Endowed Scholarship is given to a full-time upper-level undergraduate or graduate student majoring in English.
