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. (Young Philosopher Scholarships are also available for incoming freshmen through a separate application process.)
Several scholarships will be given to help defray tuition expenses of freshman and sophomore students.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications should be completed and submitted by 5:00 p.m. January 31, 2013, for scholarships to be granted fall semester.
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.
Please fill out the application form online and print. No handwritten forms will be accepted.
