School of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs Philosophy Scholarships
Potter Scholarships

Professor Potter was an instrumental figure in the founding of the Department of Philosophy and a long-time instructor in a number of areas at what was then Washington State College. These scholarships honor his memory.

Several scholarships will be given to help defray tuition expenses of junior- and senior-level 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.
