In 2008 Mrs. Farley Moody Galbraith, a generous donor who also established the Farley Moody Galbraith Endowed Art Scholarship as well as an endowment to support the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art, created the Farley Moody Galbraith Scholarship to support talented students of the department who demonstrate financial or personal need.
