Students must submit a scholarship application in order to be considered for scholarship funds. Generally, scholarship funds are awarded in the Spring semester on a yearly basis. The Scholarship Committee meets in March to select scholarship awardees based on the criteria for each scholarship fund. Scholarship letters are typically distributed to students in mid-April for awards to be made for the following academic year.
Continuation of scholarships is predicated on the student continuing to make progress within their major, maintaining a good GPA, and maintaining full-time status. In some cases, students enrolled part-time who are still making progres on their degree may be awarded pro-rated scholarships.
These scholarships are made possible by the generosity of Washburn alumni and friends. The Biology Department thanks all those donors who support our Scholarship Funds through the Washburn University Foundation. Recipients are asked to write a brief Thank You Note to the donors; lack of follow-through may result in revocation of the scholarship.
We distribute monies from the following scholarship funds:
Dr. Tracy Wagner, Chair
Dr. Susan Bjerke
Dr. Rodrigo Mercader
Ms. Wendy Stafford
