Each undergraduate or graduate scholarship will be awarded for one year. Scholars may reapply for the possibility of renewal for a second year for a two-year maximum term, as long as the student remains in good standing as determined by his/her academic department and remains in the program for which the scholarship was awarded. Students who have held an undergraduate Wick R. Miller Endowed Scholarship are eligible to apply for the scholarship as a graduate student but will receive no special preference.
To apply, please submit to the American West Center:
- American West Scholarship Form
- A curriculum vita or resume
- A statement in no more than 300 words of general activities, intellectual interest, proposed course of study, academic achievements, and leadership experiences; including a statement of educational and professional goals and how the applicant plans to attain them. Also indicate graduate or undergraduate intention and the department or program of study.
- One letter of recommendation, preferably from faculty who can comment on your academic ability and performance.
