Westmont Magazine New Scholarship Sets High Standards
Stanton D. Anderson ’62 wants to help Westmont attract top students, so he has established a merit-based scholarship that pays the entire yearly cost of tuition, fees, room, and board. The Stanton D. Anderson Scholarship is the first of its kind at Westmont.
Entering first-year students with outstanding academic and athletic perfor- mance and demonstrated leadership ability are eligible to apply for the award. The recipient can retain the scholarship for four years by maintaining at least a 3.25 GPA. When the first Anderson Scholar graduates, another will be chosen.
Anderson, a lawyer and trade-policy analyst who practices in Washington, D.C., intends to support students who excel in academics, athletics, and leadership. He and his wife, Carol, will fund the prestigious award each year.
“This scholarship will send a strong message about Westmont’s commitment to recruit outstanding students,” he notes. “The college can use it as a marketing tool in their efforts to reach highly qualified and motivated students.”
“Stan was an outstanding student-athlete and has been a loyal and active alumnus,” says Westmont President David Winter. “What a marvelous way to support the mission of Westmont.”
