PAMFES Sponsored Scholarships

Each year, PAMFES sponsors three scholarship awards. Two of these scholarships are awarded through the Pennsylvania State University and one is awarded directly through PAMFES. Scholarships are awarded to students each fall. 

For most of its history, there were three scholarships awarded annually. The Walter S. Anderson Memorial Scholarship dates from 1945; the Edwin Wagner Memorial Scholarship from 1993 and the Patrick Campbell Memorial Scholarship (formerly Sanitarians Scholarship) from the mid 1950’s. Dr Lamartine F. Hood, former Dean, Pennsylvania State University, College of Agriculture, received the Walter Anderson Scholarship in his early student days at Penn State University.

 

350 Scholarships have been given out since 1995, totaling over $500,000.
