Endowed and other scholarships are sources of student financial aid made possible through the generosity of friends of the college. Scholarships are donated in perpetuity, often as a memorial or in recognition of a special person.
These scholarships have been made possible by alumni and other friends closely related to Linfield College. It is hoped that recipients of this generosity will later continue this cycle of generosity to benefit future generations.
Students may be selected for multiple scholarships. Please read carefully through each scholarship and verify that you meet the criteria before checking it off.
The Collins Medical Trust established the Joseph F. Paquet Scholarship Fund in 1986 to honor Dr. Paquet’s accomplishments in the field of medicine and his interest in nursing education. The income from the fund will be used each year to assist needy and able students studying nursing. Priority will be given to students who hold an RN or LPN and have returned to college to study for their Bachelor of Science degree. Should there be none who meet these qualifications; the scholarship will be awarded to needy and able students in their junior or senior years in nursing or a medically related field.
Members of Phi Theta Kappa must submit proof of membership. Phi Theta Kappa (two-year college honor society) are eligible to receive a $1,000/semester renewable scholarship. Up to 10 scholarships can be awarded each year. The award is renewed each year at the same dollar amount if the student meets the College’s academic standards for enrollment and applies for renewal in a timely manner.
