Applications are sought for the 2017-18 Eric Englund Memorial Postgraduate Scholarship, which is to be awarded to a graduate of Oregon State University. This scholarship is to be given for graduate study in:
- Agricultural Economics (preferably, but not necessarily exclusively, in its international aspects),
or graduate study in:
- Kinesiology ( Program name change from Exercise and Sport Science), Human Development and Family Studies or Nutrition.
Study may be pursued in any college or university that the student may select with the advice and approval of the authorities of Oregon State University. Preference will be given to students who intend to pursue graduate study at Oregon State University. Given equal capacity for study, preference will be given to those applicants who may not otherwise have the opportunity for such study. Graduates of any bachelor's or master's degree program at Oregon State University are eligible to apply. In addition, those expecting to receive either a bachelor's or master's degree from OSU by June 2017 may also apply. This scholarship may be given in addition to a departmental graduate teaching or research assistantship. Awards may vary, but normally will be up to $2,000. Previous recipients are not eligible to apply. Domestic and international students are eligible to apply.
One or more scholarships will be awarded for the 2017-18 school year, depending on the qualifications and financial needs of the applicants.
