Mike and Kathy Hambelton Fellowship
Mike and Kathy Hambelton have established an endowment to help ensure the continuation of WSU’s tree fruit research activities, specifically graduate research, within the growing areas of Washington State. The scholarship for up to $3,000 may be used by graduate students working in tree fruit disciplines and affiliated with research programs at the Tree Fruit Research and Extension Center in Wenatchee. Scholarship funds may be used for tuition and fees, subsistence, research expenses (e.g. equipment, supplies, books, travel to scientific meetings to present results of their research), and other educational expenses. The funds will be available beginning August 16 and the recipient will have 2 years from the date of the award to expend the funds. The recipient of the scholarship will be required to write a letter to Mike and Kathy Hambelton thanking them for the funding, explaining what their research project is focused on, and how the funding will be used to support their research project. Annually the recipient will submit a written report to the Mike and Kathy Hambelton Fellowship on how the funds were used.
