Stanley Ann Dunham was a 1960 graduate of Mercer Island High School and the mother of President Barack Obama. She became a pioneering anthropologist in the area of microfinance, helping to create sustainable businesses for people in marginalized communities around the world – especially women.
A $5,000 college scholarship will be awarded to two female students currently enrolled in the senior classes at MIHS and at RBHS who demonstrate a commitment to the values of social activism, global service, and educational excellence that Dr. Dunham practiced in her life and work.
