About the O'Day Fellowship
The Mary O'Day Gerontology Fellowship was established in 1992 to honor Mary O'Day, longtime field consultant and lecturer in Social Welfare. The O'Day Fellowship is awarded annually to a master’s student in Aging Services. The annual award amount is currently $1,500.
A pioneer in gerontological social work, Mary O'Day served on the Social Welfare faculty for 20 years as Coordinator of the Gerontology Program, forerunner of today's Aging Services concentration.
