Departmental Scholarship Opportunities

For those of you who are professional writing majors or minors, please be aware of these important opportunities funded by a generous endowment from William H. and Ruth E. Crouse.

The English department offers several opportunities for undergraduate scholarships for professional writing majors, and, starting next fall professional writing minors as well.

There are two $5,000 Crouse scholarships for PW majors and two $1000 scholarships for PW minors.

Please read more about it on the program website.

The application deadline is March 9th. I’ll be happy to help any of you with your application materials. Let’s talk more if you’re interested. I was a Crouse scholar myself.



I am a PhD student in Rhetoric and Composition and Purdue University. I currently teach first year composition. My research interests include threshold concepts in composition, invention strategies, service-learning, community engagement, and professional and technical writing.
