marion sonnenfeld awardThe Marion Sonnenfeld Award Scholarship is presented each year to outstanding female students who exemplify leadership, hard work, and a good sense of community.

Scholarship winners are honored at an award ceremony each fall semester.



Marion Sonnenfeld spent 25 years on the faculty at Fredonia, teaching German. She was a member of the German Department, named distinguished professor, and was the first woman Dean of the Arts & Humanities. Marion carried the virtues of her parents of loving life, being a faithful and loyal friend, having an outstanding work ethic, and taking pride in her work.

Marion believed that the recipient of this scholarship should see the good in everyone and try to help others to develop what is best in them.
