Capt. Bill McGinn was a first-responder at the World Trade Center in New York City at the attacks on September 11, 2001.  He perished in his rescue duties there.  A summer study scholarship for a qualifying graduate student is endowed in his name by the generosity of the McGinn family.  For more information, and to learn more about the Goldman and Sollman awards, see the information at Application to the Classical Summer School at the American Academy at Rome must also be submitted, and that information can be found at
