Wilder Crane Memorial Scholarship

The Wilder Crane Memorial Scholarship is given to a political science major or a political science graduate student with demonstrated high academic achievement and engagement in the field of study. In order to be considered for this scholarship as an undergraduate, students must be entering or in their senior year with defined plans for graduate study after college.

For optimal consideration, students should fill out these parts of the general scholarship application and make sure the most recent transcript is uploaded:

  • Co-curricular Activities
  • Community Service and Volunteer Work
  • Work Experience
  • Academic and Career Goals

*You must leave enough time for the person writing your letter of recommendation to do so by the application deadline. * Submitting their name and email address close to the deadline does not allow for them to receive the email, write the letter, and submit it by the deadline.

You may edit your general application at any time prior to the deadline for the Wilder Crane Memorial Scholarship.
