R.S. Baker Memorial Scholarship

In memory of long-time English/Humanities faculty member R.S. Baker, Dr. Dennis Eddings, emeritus Professor of English at Western Oregon University, has contributed funds for a scholarship. For the 2011-12 school year, one $1000 scholarship was available. The funds are distributed in three payments for Fall, Winter, and Spring terms, contingent on full-time enrollment status as a major in any Humanities field at WOU. The duration of the scholarship is normally one academic year. Provided that a recipient has made acceptable progress toward his or her degree, a scholarship may be awarded for a total of four (4) successive years; re-application is necessary. Failure of the student to remain in good academic standing or to make satisfactory progress toward a degree may result in withdrawal of the scholarship.
