The Physical Science department awards two $500 scholarships every spring semester in honor of two former colleagues, Richard Clark and Larry Cabral. These scholarships are largely merit-based, and honor exceptional academic students majoring in the physical sciences.
Recipients must be a continuing Butte student OR transferring to a four-year institution with a major in Astronomy, Chemistry, Geology, Meteorology, Physics, or related majors.
Recipients must have completed a minimum of 15 units at Butte by the time the scholarship is awarded.
They must have completed a minimum of one course in their major at Butte.
They must have a minimum overall G.P.A. of 3.0.
The scholarship committee looks favorably on students who tutor, grade, or are stockroom assistants , although this is not a requirement for the scholarship.
Spring 2013 due date was Thursday, May 16, 2013. The applications are due to the Foundation office.
Applicants will be required to submit a copy of their college transcript (unofficial transcript is acceptable).
There is one application for both scholarships.
