You should apply for the Brett E. Blanch Memorial Scholarship. We have had to delay the deadline because the Philosophy faculty, in their haze of lofty thoughts, have forgotten to encourage students to apply. More information is available in Main 204, but here are the basic requirements:

• major in philosophy
• now a junior (more importantly: will be attending next year)
• at least 9 credits toward a major completed
• 3.7 GPA
• names of two Phil faculty to serve as references
• one-page essay articulating your view of why studying philosophy is important, and what you plan to do after graduation

New deadline: April 5th. Please obtain entry form (it’s only a page) from Main 204, and turn it in there as well.
