The Garvey Scholarship Competition is an essay competition with a 75 minute time limit used to determine Garvey Scholarships. Essays should be between 400 and 500 words and in response to the following prompt:

"Washburn’s motto is Non Nobis Solum, Not for ourselves alone, which is ingrained in what it means to be an Ichabod. How will you, as a student at and alumnus of Washburn, embody this motto?"

High school seniors with a 3.25 or higher cumulative GPA are eligible to participate in the Garvey Scholarship Competition. Garvey Scholarships are $1,500 and may be renewed up to four consecutive years by maintaining a 3.25 or higher GPA, and can only be used at Washburn University.
