Meet the Newest Ames Scholars

2018 Ames scholars
Since the Ames Scholarship program was established at Seattle Pacific University in 2001, 132 students have been offered Ames Scholarships. The 2018–19 Ames Scholars gather with Gary and Barbara Ames (far left), who established this scholarship, along with President Dan Martin (back row) as the school year was ready to begin. The first scholars to graduate became part of the SPU Class of 2005.

Meet the newest Ames Scholars, a group of young leaders who will one day be part of the SPU Class of 2022.
