The Thomas Slocum Career Advancement Award has been created from the Betsy and Jesse Fink Career Development Program and will provide one graduating senior (May) with a $2,500 award to assist with job travel related to interviews, relocation expenses, building a professional clothing closet, and more.
Thomas Slocum served ESF from 1977 to 2008 as the Director of Career and Counseling Services. This award has been created to honor the support Tom showed to Jesse in making possible his attendance at a job interview that helped launch his professional career. This award will be given to students who embody this career readiness spirit and would benefit from the jumpstart this award would provide.
