Young girls are an untapped resource in science and engineering, and therefore they need encouragement and positive role models so that they will continue to pursue their studies in these areas.? (Bill Webber) ABOUT THE PROGRAM: Through the Webber program, female biology, chemistry, environmental science and physics majors who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable in their area of research serve as mentors to local 5th graders to foster scientific curiosity and understanding. Mr. Webber saw his scholarship program as an opportunity to provide especially young girls with a female role model and mentor, while recognizing, honoring and financially supporting the scholars as they earn their science degrees from Willamette University.
Any current (2011/12) sophomore or junior woman majoring in biology, chemistry, environmental science, or physics enrolled full time in the College of Liberal Arts at Willamette University shall be 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 academic year.
