    Philosophy Scholarships

    Joseph Norio Uemura Scholarship

    The Joseph Norio Uemura Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 in honor of Professor Emeritus Joseph Norio Uemura, who was professor of philosophy in the College of Liberal Arts from 1966 - 1994. It was made possible by a gift from Philip and Marilyn Krasowki, both of the class of 1970. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide an annual scholarship award to a student in the College of Liberal Arts, based on his or her demonstrated "excellence in philosophy."

    This shall mean that the recipients: 1) have a sincere commitment to the liberal arts; and 2) have seriously and deeply "examined" their lives (Plato, Apology, 38a) and can show that "they care more for truth than health, wealth, honors, or power" (Apology, 29e). Preference shall be given to students who major or minor in philosophy, but need not exclude others who demonstrate a serious commitment to the liberal arts.

    The selection of the recipient will be based on a 1 - 3 page letter or essay from applicants addressing the above-mentioned criteria.

    2009 Recipients: Dana Hoffman and Christopher Rochel
