Lenora McGregor Endowed Scholarship
McGregor Scholarship Competition, 2015-2016

The Lenora McGregor Endowed Scholarship awards up to $26,000 to an incoming freshman student who has demonstrated academic excellence in the past, has an academic vision for the future, and who expresses an interest in advancing knowledge through individual learning.  Students do not need to compete in WSU’s Distinguished Scholarship Invitational to be eligible to apply for the McGregor Scholarship.

To be eligible for the McGregor Scholarship students must:

  • Meet the minimum eligibility criteria for admission to the Cohen Honors College (a high school GPA of 3.7 or an ACT score of 27 or above); exceptional applicants will meet both of the admissions criteria
  • Be admitted to WSU by November 1st
  • Be willing to participate in and complete the requirements of the Honors College if awarded the scholarship

Deadline for receipt of application materials: January 15, 2015

To apply for the McGregor Scholarship, students must complete the online application to join Honors (click on fall semester), where they will be automatically considered for eligibility if they apply before January 15, 2015.

Review of materials may take up to three weeks.  In-person interviews of semi-finalists by the McGregor Selection Committee will be scheduled after semi-finalists are chosen.  Students selected as semi-finalists may be asked to submit letters of recommendation or additional application materials.
