About the Donor
James M. Ewing graduated from WSU with a degree in electrical engineering in 1978. He grew up in Seattle and graduated from Queen Anne High School in 1960. Although Jim was the best math and science student in his high-school graduating class, earned high grades, and wanted to be a scientist or engineer from the time he was a kid, poverty and other factors delayed his education for many years.
Jim believes that all people should have the opportunity to obtain an education commensurate with their abilities and desires regardless of family circumstances. Mr. Ewing contributes annually to this scholarship and has made provision in his will to endow the scholarship upon his death.
The proceeds from this fund provide scholarships to qualified undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Recipients shall be selected from students whose family income is below the median family income in the state of Washington at the time they are attending WSU.
Recipients shall have maintained a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.2 (out of a possible 4.0) at WSU. Students who have not yet completed a semester at WSU shall have maintained a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.2 (out of a possible 4.0) in high school or the previous college or community college they have attended.
