Lambert, Jean

Eligibility criteria: Students attending Fisk University (freshman through senior) with a 3.0 GPA who are studying the arts, healthcare or religion. The scholarship is renewable, but students must reapply each year.


Dr. E. Jean Lambert was a lifelong educator who was passionate about communications, religion and later in life, health.  She retired from Fisk University, after having taught there in the communications department.  She held a special place in her heart for both the institution and more importantly the students that matriculated and that she could watch blossom year after year into successful leaders.  She was also very active in her church and religion was a cornerstone of strength in her life.  She ultimately succumbed to the ALS disease but through this endowed scholarship fund her legacy will live on and honor her wish to see students at Fisk University in the Arts, Healthcare and Religion continually benefit.
