Rebecca Scofield, a history professor at the University of Idaho in Moscow, has been awarded a $50,000 fellowship from the Whiting Foundation for her International Gay Rodeo Association oral history project.

Scofield began the Gay Rodeo Oral History Project in 2016 and to date, has collected more than 30 interviews. With the fellowship, she plans to expand this collection of oral histories and design an online exhibit.

Scofield was one of seven fellows named Tuesday by the Whiting Public Engagement Program.
