Danforth Scholars may receive full-tuition or partial-tuition scholarships. The scholarship is renewed each year for the duration of the degree program, provided the scholar progresses academically and upholds the high standards of character required of scholars.
Josie Campbell Named Danforth Scholar
Josie Campbell was recently named a prestigious Danforth Scholar at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo. The Danforth Scholars Program honors students who embrace high ideals and whose life choices are guided by personal integrity, selflessness, a commitment to community, and a dedication to leadership and academic excellence.
The Danforth Scholars Selection Committee, composed of university faculty and friends, will consider all nominations individually and in detail. To be considered for this prestigious award, a student must be nominated by an individual who has substantive knowledge of the student's accomplishments and goals. In addition to outstanding academic performance, the committee is interested in activities that illustrate the candidate's exceptional commitment to community service, high moral character, and similar qualities that exemplify the Danforths' legacy at Washington University. The selection committee finds it helpful to learn of specific examples of leadership, academic, and personal achievements that set this student apart from his or her peers.
Up to 40 applicants will be selected as finalists and will be invited to campus for a required interview weekend. As many as four full-tuition and a number of partial-tuition scholarships will be awarded.
