Mabel Winifred Goode Social Welfare Fellowship

The Mabel Winifred Goode Fellowship Fund was established by Mabel Goode, who majored in history at Berkeley and received her BA in 1926. She dedicated her life to public education and spent her career as a public school teacher in the Albany School District.

The Mabel Winifred Goode Fellowship supports graduate students in the School of Social Welfare.
