Young Philosopher Scholarships

The school is pleased to announce that scholarship funds are available for upcoming semesters for students already at Washington State University who have not yet reached junior status.

Academic excellence (3.0 GPA or greater) and proven interest in philosophy will be prime factors in the selection of recipients. Such excellence will be judged on the basis of the following:

  • A transcript of graded course work.
  • Demonstrated proficiency in writing—not merely in correctness of mechanics but also in the ability to select, organize, and present ideas effectively.
  • Recommendations from philosophy faculty members.
  • Performance in philosophy classes.

Financial need is normally not a consideration, and one need not be a philosophy major or minor to apply.

Decisions regarding the awarding of scholarships will be made by the Scholarship Committee. If you have any questions, contact the school at 509-335-2544 or pppa@wsu.edu.

Application Deadline

Applications should be completed and submitted by 5:00 p.m. on March 24, 2014, for scholarships to be granted for fall semester. Applications can be turned into the office at 801 Johnson Tower or emailed to kdemand@wsu.edu

Earlier applications are encouraged, and decisions on some of the scholarships may be made prior to that date. The committee may also consider applications for mid-year admissions.
