College of the Environment Scholarships
The College of the Environment is pleased to announce the availability of student scholarships for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Deadline: April 17, 2013
COLLEGE OF THE ENVIRONMENT SCHOLARSHIP
This scholarship is made possible by the generosity of donors. The scholarship was created to support both undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in the College of the Environment.
These scholarships are available to any student (undergraduate or graduate) pursuing a degree in College of the Environment. Previous recipients may re-apply. Award decisions will be based upon academic merit and financial need.
CLARENCE H. CAMPBELL ENDOWED LAUREN DONALDSON SCHOLARSHIP
This scholarship is made possible by the generosity of Clarence H. Campbell in memory of Lauren “Doc” Donaldson. Professor Lauren “Doc” Donaldson earned his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Washington in 1931. He served on the faculty of the School of Fisheries from 1932 until his retirement in 1973. Doc was a world-renowned expert in development of fish stocks, and trained countless students in freshwater fisheries research and management. Clarence Campbell, ’30, established this fund to recognize Doc’s lasting influence.
These scholarships are available to any student (undergraduate or graduate) pursuing a degree in The School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, The School of Marine and Environmental Affairs, or the School of Oceanography. Previous recipients may re-apply. Award decisions will be based upon academic merit and financial need.
NANCY WILCOX SCHOLARSHIP
This scholarship is made possible by the generosity of former UW Provost Phyllis Wise, who established it to support students pursuing degrees in the College of the Environment. Dr. Wise named the endowment in honor and memory of her late sister, Nancy E. Wang Wilcox, a middle school teacher who tried to develop the minds of young adolescents using creative and innovative ways of learning. It is this legacy that inspired Provost Wise to establish this endowment to carry on her sister’s commitment to helping others achieve their educational goals.
These scholarships are available to entering freshmen or transfer students who are pursuing or plan to pursue a degree in the College of the Environment. The Nancy Wilcox Scholarship is part of the “Students First” program at the University of Washington (UW). Recipients will be eligible for continued scholarship funding as long as they meet satisfactory progress requirements. Award decisions will be based upon financial need, and, secondarily, academic merit.
DEL RIO ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES SCHOLARSHIP
The Del Rio Family Foundation established the Del Rio Endowed Scholarship Fund for Environmental Studies to encourage and support students with an interest in the environment who are participating in the Educational Opportunity Program, which promotes academic success and graduation for under-represented ethnic minority, economically disadvantaged and first generation college students at the University of Washington. The Foundation hopes that through their studies and participation in real-world environmental research and problem-solving, students will broaden their personal horizons to include issues of global concern and will develop a passion and the skill set for making a difference in the world.
These scholarships are available to freshmen or transfer students who are pursuing or plan to pursue a degree in the College of the Environment and who plan to participate in the Educational Opportunity Program. The Del Rio Environmental Studies Scholarship is part of the “Students First” program at the University of Washington (UW). Recipients will be eligible for continued scholarship funding as long as they meet satisfactory progress requirements. Award decisions will be based upon financial need, and, secondarily, academic merit.
Award amounts for both scholarships will vary depending upon financial need and will be distributed over the course of the Autumn, Winter and Spring quarters this coming 2013-14 academic year, paid directly to the recipient’s student account.
