The Elizabeth A. Rihm Scholarship

The Elizabeth A. Rihm Annual Scholarship is named in honor of Beth Rihm, a special education major from Snellville, Georgia, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident in 2003. Beth was a member of Delta Zeta Sorority and extremely active in sorority philanthropy and in volunteerism in the local community.

The faculty members in the special education program unanimously approved the establishment of the Beth Rihm Award given yearly to the graduating senior in the special education program who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to others through volunteer service in the community. Beginning in 2004 this award is presented annually at the John H. Lounsbury College of Education Honors Convocation; a permanent plaque is displayed in the department in her honor.


  1. Be a rising senior enrolled in the undergraduate special education program offered by the John H. Lounsbury College of Education.  If there are no applicants who meet that requirement then it may be awarded to a rising senior in the early childhood or middle grades education programs;
  2. Be a member of Delta Zeta Sorority, GCSU Chapter;
  3. Be recommended by the Chair of the Department of Special Education and Educational Leadership in the John H. Lounsbury College of Education.
