DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire Alumni Association has honored four UNH students with $1,000 scholarships funded by the proceeds of the association’s annual open golf tournament.

The scholarships are awarded to UNH undergraduates on the basis of academic merit, financial need, and exceptional support of the UNH Alumni Association and UNH Foundation.

Recipients of the 2006 scholarships are Jacqueline Goodall of Chelmsford, Mass., a sophomore majoring in psychology; Meghan Hastings of Barre, Mass., a sophomore majoring in psychology; Samantha Larsen of Rockport, Mass., a junior majoring in recreation management and policy; and Katrina Parker of Londonderry, N.H., a junior majoring in mathematics.

“We are delighted to be able to provide scholarships to these deserving students,” said Gregg Sanborn, executive director of the Alumni Association. “Each is an exemplary scholar, a good citizen and a credit to our university.”

The 30th annual UNH Alumni Association Golf Tournament, which will benefit the association’s scholarship fund, will be sponsored by Liberty Mutual this year. The tournament will be held on Tuesday, July 25, 2006, at Sky Meadow Country Club in Nashua, N.H. For more information on the event, which will include a complimentary lunch and awards banquet, call the UNH Alumni Association at (603) 862-2040.
