George Bate Scholarship

We would like to invite you to apply for the George Bate Scholarship. George Bate is an emeritus professor of physics who taught at Westmont for more than 20 years in the 70’s and 80’s. We will be awarding a $1500 one time scholarship this fall to the top incoming first year student in physics and/or engineering.
To apply, we need a short (one page or so) essay on why you are interested in engineering or physics. In addition we would like a letter of recommendation from a science teacher (preferably physics teacher). If one of your letters to Westmont was already from a science or physics teacher, let us know and we’ll get it from admissions.
The criteria for judging the winner will involve grades, test scores, commitment to the program, financial need, and potential for success. Please apply by June 1st.
