The annual Lizz Ketterer Memorial Scholarship


To honour the scholarly legacy of Dr Elizabeth Ann Ketterer (1979-2011), the Lizz Ketterer Trust has established the annual Lizz Ketterer Memorial Scholarship, that may allow a young alumnus or alumna of the Shakespeare at Winedale programme of the University of Texas — Lizz’s home state — the chance to follow in her footsteps and attend the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Summer School, held at the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon, and get to meet new friends, join in the activities at the Institute, and see all the Shakespeare shows at the RSC theatres.


The first recipient of the award in 2012 was Melissa Johnson, who was studying for her MA at Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia.


We are pleased to announce that the recipient for the 2013 Lizz Ketterer Memorial Scholarship has been Chelsea Bunn of the University of Texas at Austin.
