for continuing undergraduate students
The Dr. Robert B. Pamplin Jr. Society of Fellows
Membership in the Pamplin Society is the highest honor bestowed by Lewis & Clark College on its students. Each fall the College names seven Pamplin fellows as they begin their second year at the College (membership may also be extended to transfer students and others to fill vacancies). The fellows are guaranteed that their demonstrated financial need, up to full tuition and fees, will be met with grant and scholarship assistance. Regardless of need, fellows also receive awards of $600 in each remaining year of their studies at Lewis & Clark to be used for academic support such as books, computers, travel to conferences, senior thesis research, or to supplement joint research projects with the faculty.
President’s Scholarship for Academic Engagement
Four $5,000 scholarships are to be awarded to students with sophomore standing in 2012-13 for use in their junior year. Faculty members are invited to nominate sophomore students who demonstrate an interdisciplinary approach to their selected major. They demonstrate this and qualify to be considered for the scholarship by a proposal for a directed study project for fall semester of their junior year. The project may address any area of study within their major. To contend for the scholarship the project must be constructed in cooperation with a faculty member in the student’s major department in such a way as to compel the student to think in interdisciplinary ways, and to situate his or her major subject within the wider framework of the liberal arts. Proposals that are truly interdisciplinary—and that explicitly require consultation with ideas, concepts, and faculty members in other disciplines across the college—are particularly welcome. Students must have a GPA of 3.0 or better to qualify. A selection committee composed of College of Arts and Sciences faculty members whose own work exemplifies interdisciplinary research will review and recommend applicants to the President for selection as scholarship awardees. Awards are renewable for the senior year based on continued excellence, making this potentially a $10,000 scholarship. The scholarship is awarded regardless of financial need; however, the total scholarship and grant received by the student from all sources may not exceed the total cost of tuition, room, and board.
The deadline for faculty nominations is Friday, February 1, 2013.
Mary Stuart Rogers Scholarship
Scholarships of $5,000 are awarded to currently enrolled sophomores and juniors for use in their junior year and/or senior years. Sophomore and junior students who have a minimum 3.20 cumulative grade point average and demonstrate sufficient financial need are invited to apply. Recipients are selected with consideration given to academic achievement, outstanding personal qualities, and financial need.
R.B. Pamplin Corporation Scholarships
Two $2,500 scholarships are awarded to currently enrolled sophomores for their junior year. Students who are in the top 10% of the sophomore class are invited to apply. Recipients are selected based on academic merit as well as community and college service. Awards are renewable for the senior year based on continued excellence, making this a $5,000 scholarship funded by the R.B. Pamplin Corporation.
Alumni Leadership Scholarship
The Alumni Leadership Scholarship will recognize and reward outstanding students who show leadership potential, actively participate in the Lewis & Clark community, and who want to create meaningful connections between students and alumni. To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a current freshman, sophomore, or junior at Lewis & Clark College and considered in good academic standing. 6-12 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each will be awarded. In addition, each scholar will have an opportunity to participate in alumni events and interact with the Board of Alumni to benefit career and professional development and build stronger connections with the alumni community.
More information and application instructions are available through the Office of Alumni & Parent Programs.
Scholarships of varying amounts are awarded each year to one or more students who demonstrate financial need and have performed at a high level of academic achievement while overcoming special challenges in their lives such as a serious illness or a difficult family situation. Students apply through the Student Development Center and are selected by a committee of faculty and staff.
