LSU Campus Life, a department within the Office of the Dean of Students, is awarding the 2019 Tom W. Dutton Scholarship to 10 female students who were nominated for their participation and leadership in campus and community service activities.

No student may receive the award more than once while enrolled at LSU.

The late Tom W. Dutton’s bequest established the award in 1969. Dutton served as a member of the LSU Board of Supervisors from 1940-1967. He also served as the vice chair and the chairman of the board from 1940-1944 from 1950-1952 respectively.

LSU Campus Life supports and advises student organizations that uphold the three tenets of Campus Life: involvement, leadership and service. These organizations include Geaux Big Baton Rouge, Homecoming Student Committee, Involvement Krewe, Service Breaks, Student Activities Board and Volunteer LSU.
