Linfield freshman wins Kemper Scholarship

Linfield is one of two Pacific Northwest schools, and 16 nationwide, to receive prestigious Kemper Scholarships. Joseph Gladow ’14 is one of this year’s two Linfield recipients.

Kemper scholars receive significant annual scholarships and professional internships with major nonprofit organizations in Chicago.

Gladow is majoring in international relations. In addition to his academic studies, he competes on the Linfield cross-country and track and field teams, hikes, backpacks, snowboards and plays saxophone.

Kemper scholars are chosen from a select group of 16 liberal arts colleges around the country, with one scholar typically named for each school,” says Deborah Olsen, competitive scholarships advisor at Linfield.

In its first year of participation, Linfield has received two scholarships. Kemper scholars are supported by the James S. Kemper Foundation.
