UMass Amherst IT Scholarship Committee wrote -
Established in memory of Hannah Frilot, this annual scholarship supports an undergraduate student in an underrepresented major. Studying industrial engineering in the class of 2015, Hannah’s time with us was tragically cut short in July 2014. Hannah fought to succeed in her field, interning at the Yankee Candle Company in addition to her work in the department and at UMass Amherst IT. With Hannah’s advocacy for women and the LGBTQ community, particularly her service as treasurer of UMass Amherst Pride Alliance, in mind, preference will be given to women studying in an underrepresented field, such as engineering.
