Alice Cooper Shoulberg Scholarship Fund

For the support of creative publishing at the Kelly Writers House

Alice Cooper Shoulberg was a brilliant student who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's College for Women in 1955. Despite medical difficulties, she became a beloved and inspiring teacher at Overbrook High School, her alma mater. Alice's passion was English. She died tragically at the age of twenty six.

In 1961, friends of relatives of Alice founded the Alice Cooper Shoulberg Scholarship Fund. For many years, this Fund granted an annual scholarship to promising graduates of Overbrook High School. The remainder of the Fund is now being donated to the Kelly Writers House, in memory of Alice, to support the creative publishing technology used by Penn students at the House.

A program to celebrate Alice Cooper Shoulberg and the Fund's gift to Writers House was held on Sunday, November 1, 1998, from 2:00-3:30pm at the Kelly Writers House, 3805 Locust Walk. The Kelly Writers House especially thanks Frank Greenberg and Janet Adler, administrators of the Alice Cooper Shoulberg Scholarship Fund, for their generosity and support.
