Andrea Uleberg Memorial Fellowship

Miss Andrea Uleberg was the youngest of eight children born to Norwegian parents. She grew up in Hayfield, Minn., and taught several years in town schools before going to Washington, D.C., in 1918 to work in War Risk Insurance (later the Veterans Bureau). Miss Uleberg helped disabled veterans who could not leave the hospital with their claims. She returned to Minnesota to attend State Teachers College and the University of Minnesota and earned her education degree in 1927. Miss Uleberg was awarded two scholarships to the University of Chicago and received her master’s degree in social service administration.

Wichita public schools superintendent, L.W. Mayberry, asked Miss Uleberg to come to Wichita in 1929. She worked as a school counselor in the Wichita school district until her retirement in 1960, at which time she was selected as Woman of the Year by the Soroptimist Club. Miss Uleberg died April 4, 1975, in Newton, Kan.

The Andrea Uleberg Memorial Fellowship was established by a gift from her estate. It is awarded to a full- or part-time student in the College of Education. Preference is given to an international student who takes courses in guidance and counseling.
