How to Apply

To be considered as an applicant for this scholarship, this completed application must be returned to the Chair of your department by February 23, 2018 (last Friday in February). Department Chairs must make a decision by the end of March. The Webber Scholars will be announced at the Honors and Awards Convocation in April.


Any current (2017/18) sophomore or junior woman majoring in biology, chemistry, environmental science, or physics and enrolled full time in the College of Liberal Arts at Willamette University is eligible for consideration to receive the scholarship for the following academic year. Applicants must have a cumulative college grade point average of 3.00 or higher and must be in residence for the full 2018/19 academic year. Current scholars are eligible to apply to participate in the program for a second year.


Two or more finalists will be selected from each of the four departments (Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Physics) by recommendation of the faculty of that department after reviewing each application. Final selections will be made by the Webber Program, in consultation with department chairs. Each Webber Scholar will receive $9,000 for the 2018/19 academic year.
