The Catherine Zesbaugh Scholarship was established to encourage and support economically disadvantaged students with an interest in teaching. The scholarship is provided to undergraduate students (juniors and seniors) who are interested in pursuing a career in education (elementary or secondary education). Eligible students are provided a year long scholarship of $1500 per quarter. The students are required to participate in a year long seminar designed to introduce them to current trends and issues impacting education (nationally and locally). Zesbaugh Scholars are required to work closely with a faculty mentor during the year on a research project. The project is presented at the spring research/leadership events (University of Washington Undergraduate Research Symposium or Carlson Center Spring Celebration). Students are allowed to present their research projects to their peers, mentors, and other invited guests during presentations arranged through the Zesbaugh Scholars Faculty Advisor.
