Karla Longree Scholarship

A native of Germany, Karla Longree left that country in 1933 on a temporary visa to be a guest lecturer and researcher at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Professor Longree retired to Highland Farms Retirement Community in Black Mountain and came to admire Warren Wilson through her association with a variety of friends of the College. The Longree Scholarship was established in 1996 through her will. The Trustees of the College gave this fund endowed status in 1997. Earnings from this fund are designated for deserving students who demonstrate financial need.
