Seattle Pacific University knows a diverse community is an asset. In fact, since 2002, the percentage of U.S. domestic ethnic minority students has continued to increase.
The Ames Scholarships, which help support traditionally underrepresented students of color, are making a difference! Today, 22 SPU Ames Scholars are in part supported through a fund started by a $1 million donation from SPU friends Gary and Barbara Ames. There are 51 Ames alumni who are in medical school, law school, graduate school, working for non-profit organizations, K-12 education, healthcare, and high tech.

The Ames Scholarship seeks to support students of color coming from the most underrepresented cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We believe these students will bring valuable life experiences to SPU and impact our campus greatly. We will consider students that have cross cultural experiences, a desire to participate in leadership and on-campus activities, and have a strong passion to pursue higher education. The award amounts vary.
To be considered, please submit your Ames Scholarship application by February 15, 2015.
