The Theta Xi Fraternity at the University of Washington is dedicated to developing the intellectual curiosity of students and dedication to their community. In honor of Benjamin Franklin, the Founding Father who was also an author, printer, inventor, scientist, and diplomat, we are offering three scholarships of $500 to outstanding gentlemen who will be starting their academic career at the University of Washington this fall that best epitomize Franklin’s spirit of intellectual curiosity and dedication to community. 

Applications may be downloaded here and mailed in, or submitted online below. Applications must be postmarked or submitted by midnight June 3rd, 2017. Although we have a rolling deadline, applicants are highly encouraged to apply early. After an initial review of applications, the strongest candidates will be invited to a personal interview during July or early August 2017. Scholarship winners will be announced by August 31st, 2017.
