Joseph F. Wall '41 Scholarship
The Joseph F. Wall '41 Scholarship was established in 1983 by the Class of 1958 in honor of Joseph F. Wall '41, a graduate of Grinnell, Professor Emeritus of History, Dean of the College, and the first director of the college's Rosenfield Public Affairs program. The scholarship is restricted to second-semester juniors who have established outstanding academic records and made a significant contribution to the college community. The amount of the award is dependent on the individual student's financial need. In a typical year, around five students are selected for this honor, with scholarship amounts ranging from $500 to several thousand dollars. In 2012-13, the committee will allocate approximately $17,400 to Wall Scholarship recipients.
Third-year students with a GPA above a certain threshold are automatically considered to be nominees. Other members of the third-year class may be nominated by Grinnell College faculty members. Students who are not nominated may not apply. All nominees will be informed of their eligibility for the scholarship in early March. Applications are due from nominees on Monday, April 1, 2013 by 5:00pm in the Office of Social Commitment, 1233 Park St. Because the CRSSJ (1233 Park St.), which houses the Office of Social Commitment, is inaccessible to students with mobility disabilities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make alternative plans to submit your application materials. Nominees who are abroad may submit their application materials via email or fax (contact Doug Cutchins with any questions on how to do so). Completed applications will consist of the following:
- The Wall Scholarship application form for 2012-13
- An unofficial transcript, obtained from the Registrar's Office
- A Scholarship Nomination Permission Form and Waiver
Please ensure, as possible, that all application materials conform with these submission guidelines. Applications will be reviewed by a faculty committee. Scholars are selected on the basis of merit, but scholarship amounts are based on financial need. All nominees will be informed of their status in late April or early May.
All applicants are expected to adhere to these ethical guidelines.
