College of the Environment Scholarships
The College of the Environment is pleased to announce the availability of student scholarships for the 2012-2013
Deadline: April 18, 2012
CLARENCE H. CAMPBELL ENDOWED LAUREN DONALDSON SCHOLARSHIP
This scholarship is made possible by the generosity of Clarence H. Campbell in memory of Lauren "Doc" Donaldson.
Professor Lauren "Doc" Donaldson earned his MS and PhD degrees from the University of Washington in 1931. He
served on the faculty of the School of Fisheries from 1932 until his retirement in 1973. Doc was a world-renowned
expert in development of fish stocks, and trained countless students in freshwater fisheries research and
management. Clarence Campbell, '30, established this fund to recognize Doc's lasting influence.
These scholarships are available to any student (undergraduate or graduate) pursuing a degree in The School of
Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, The School of Marine and Environmental Affairs, or the School of Oceanography.
Previous recipients may re-apply. Award decisions will be based upon academic merit and financial need.
NANCY WILCOX SCHOLARSHIP
This scholarship is made possible by the generosity of former UW Provost Phyllis Wise, who established it to
support students pursuing degrees in the College of the Environment. Dr. Wise named the endowment in honor and
memory of her late sister, Nancy E. Wang Wilcox, a middle school teacher who tried to develop the minds of young
adolescents using creative and innovative ways of learning. It is this legacy that inspired Provost Wise to
establish this endowment to carry on her sister’s commitment to helping others achieve their educational goals.
These scholarships are available to entering freshmen or transfer students who are pursuing or plan to pursue a
degree in the College of the Environment. The Nancy Wilcox Scholarship is part of the “Students First” program at
the University of Washington (UW). Recipients will be eligible for continued scholarship funding as long as they
meet satisfactory progress requirements. Award decisions will be based upon financial need, and, secondarily,
Award amounts for both scholarships will vary depending upon financial need and will be distributed over the
course of the Autumn, Winter and Spring quarters this coming 2012-13 academic year, paid directly to the
recipient's student account.
