Scholarship Overview

The Hinshaw-Warren scholarship was founded by Dr. Russell G. Warren in honor of John M. Hinshaw. This scholarship will fall within the guidelines of the Hillcrest scholarship and provides opportunities for Honors College students with demonstrated financial need to engage in transformational off-campus experiences. A Hinshaw-Warren scholar will be selected on the basis of the quality of their proposed experience, their academic achievement and intellectual promise, and the potential for a meaningful transformational impact on their lives. It is intended that this scholarship will be in addition to qualifying University financial aid or scholarships and is not intended to replace aid or scholarship funds otherwise available to this need based student. Responsibility for the selection and awarding process lies with the Dean of the Honors College.
