DURHAM, N.H. — Susan K.

The annual award recognizes individuals or organizations in NH who have demonstrated commitment to and support of equal access to higher education.

“ Ms. Allen has shown care, concern and responsiveness to students and the educational opportunity program staff who advocate for them,” says McCann. “She is committed to ensuring educational opportunity for students and has selflessly given her time to provide countless financial aid workshops to the students and parents of UNH’s Educational Talent Search and Upward Bound programs.”

Allen worked with the University’s Student Support Services program to help them identify grant eligible, low-income students at UNH and to provide scholarship assistance to qualifying individuals.
The New Hampshire Educational Opportunity Association is made up of members who work in educational opportunity programs throughout New Hampshire.
