Ninth Annual Liberal Arts Essay Scholarship Competition
Eligible UW-Whitewater undergraduate students are invited to participate in the Ninth Annual Liberal Arts Essay Scholarship Competition sponsored by the UW System Advisory Group on the Liberal Arts (SAGLA).
Up to three students may be selected as finalists in our campus competition and will receive $500 scholarships from the UW-Whitewater Foundation to be used towards educational expenses at UW-Whitewater in the 2014-15 academic year. The finalists’ essays will then be entered into a pool to be judged at the UW System level for an additional $2,000 scholarship.
The competition is open to any UW-Whitewater undergraduate student in academic good standing.
Please visit http://www.uww.edu/acadaff/awards/students/liberalarts_scholar.html for additional information and competition guidelines. Essays should be submitted electronically as a Microsoft Word document to Dr. Elizabeth Hachten, General Education Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In past years, submissions that otherwise might have won have been disqualified due to grammatical and/or spelling errors. Be sure to proofread your essay, or have someone else proofread it, prior to submission.
Deadline for submission of essays is Feb. 1, 2014.
