Annually the Department of Philosophy presents eight scholarships
in recognition of academic achievement by philosophy students. These
* the Charles R. McGlothren Jr. Scholarship, given
by Mr. Michael McGlothren, a graduate in philosophy, in memory of his
brother, for $1000
* two Pinebrook Scholarships, given by Mr. Julian Marx, $1000 each,
* five Julien and Jean Marx Scholarships, also given by Mr. Marx,
one for $3000, three for $2000, and one for $1000.
Students eligible for these scholarships will have or expect
to have after Spring semester:
1. declared as a philosophy major, and
2. attained at least a 3.5 GPA, and
3. completed the freshman year.
Previous recipients of a Scholarship may receive it again.
For the McGlothren Scholarship only, a person may not hold both
it and an athletic scholarship.
To apply for the scholarships provide a simple written
notification to the Chair of the Philosophy Department, HUMB 124, saying
that you wish to be considered.
Applications will be received during April of
A faculty committee will review the applications in terms
of the three criteria mentioned above. It can also consider the difficulty
of the courses a person has taken, as well as extracurricular and outside
study activities. Financial aid is not a factor in the review.
The committee will obtain Spring semester transcripts
for its review. If you would like the committee to know about any activities
or achievements not reflected in your transcript, please inform us
either in your application note or by attaching your resume to it.
The committee will select and announce the recipients
of the scholarships no later than August 15.
Contact the Department Chair if you have questions or
need further information.
