Samella Lewis Scholarship
The Samella Lewis Scholarship was established by friends, students, and admirers of Samella Lewis - artist, arts educator, and former Scripps professor. The scholarship honors her as an instructor, artist, and mentor. The College will award this scholarship annually to a junior or senior African-American student who demonstrates excellence in character, leadership, and responsibility. The recipient(s) of this award will receive up to $4,500 in loan repayment upon graduation.
Rising junior or senior African-American students are eligible to apply. Applicants must be current enrolled students at Scripps College. In addition to the overall quality of personal statement and accompanying letters of recommendation, finalists will be selected on:
- Academic achievement
- Excellence in character
Applications are due November 11 by midnight. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted. Apply now.
- A personal statement of 750 words or less that describes the impact your leadership on the Scripps community
- A current resume
- An unofficial transcript
- A faculty reference letter
The selection committee is comprised of a previous/current scholarship recipient, one staff member, and up to two faculty representatives. Finalists may be invited to interview with the selection committee. The scholarship recipient(s) will be selected by late December and invited to attend the annual Donor Appreciation Luncheon in the spring. All applicants will be notified once the recipient(s) has/have been selected.
