Ruff Garners Doss Scholarship

Amelu Ruff portrait

By unanimous decision, the judges for this year's Ulysses S. Doss African-American Studies scholarship are proud to announce this year's winner - Amelu Ruff. Congratulations!

Amelu writes of herself, "I want to be on a journey where I continue to grow fearlessly and to love unconditionally. To welcome new things and new people as they come. I want to keep using my voice powerfully, to stand for every person who needs an ally, and to question the systems put in place to separate humanity and fight for equity and togetherness."

We look forward to seeing ever more significant contributions from Amelu and are delighted to have her in the AAST program.
