Prim Scholarship for Diversity and Inclusion
Double your impact to to increase opportunities for WWU students of color in Psychology!

The Merle Prim Scholarship for Diversity and Inclusion

The Prim scholarship is available to ethnic minority students who are Psychology or Behavioral Neuroscience majors and have a demonstrated financial need. Currently the Prim Scholarship awards a tuition gift of $1000 per year to the winning applicant. The College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Psychology Department at Western Washington University would like to get the scholarship to award a full tuition gift of $8000 per year. 


We need to get the Prim Endowment to a principal balance of $200,000 to achieve our 'Full-Tuition' Goal. We are nearly there and have secured a matching gift of $40,000 to reach our goal. That means every dollar you donate doubles not only your donation but the opportunity for a student of color at Western.  Help students of color and financial need realize the dream of making a difference in the lives of others by putting us over the top of the $200,000 goal.
