Scholarships and Awards

The Louise A. Lee Johnson Memorial Scholarship

On March 12, 1999, the Chapter was presented with an endowment of $10,000, as well as the transfer of oil leases, from Harald V. Johnson, of Bensenville, Illinois, to establish the Louise A. Lee Johnson Memorial Scholarship. Mrs. Johnson was the valedictorian of Cheyenne High School in 1935.  She graduated with honors from the University of Colorado and was elected to Φβκ in 1939. She arrived in France on a scholarship in 1939, but soon after her arrival there World War II threatened, and she returned to Wyoming. Mrs. Johnson participated in the University of Wyoming chartering in 1940. 

The Chapter decided to award scholarships from this fund to juniors with a perfect 4.0 GPA who are inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and return for studies the following fall.

Undergraduate Research Day Awards

With Department of Molecular Biology Academic Professional Lecturer Rachel Watson’s leadership, PBK is pleased to offer prizes for the best presentations demonstrating the integration of the liberal arts and sciences at the annual Undergraduate Research Day. Watson explains, “These Phi Beta Kappa Awards for Excellence in the Liberal Arts are required to illuminate the interfaces between science and the human condition addressed in a nuanced way that shows understanding and not simply consideration.”
