Amy Wise and Walter Permenter Memorial Scholarship Endowment

Amy Wise Permenter (1911- 1993), and her husband, Walter Permenter (1908-1995) had four daughters, each attending UM from 1959-1974..  Although Amy & Walter Permenter did not attend the university themselves, they experienced it vicariously through their daughters. In 2014, the sisters endowed a scholarship in memory of their parents.

Who is eligible?

Each spring, the Scholarship Committee in the Department of Psychology identifies an outstanding psychology student who is enrolled at the time of selection and has demonstrated financial need to receive the scholarship the following academic year. Eligible students nominated by the committee will be contacted to submit an application essay. Interested students should complete the FAFSA.

There are also scholarships available through the Office of the Dean in the College of Liberal Arts.  They are available to any major in the College of Liberal Arts, but there is not an application process.  Click here to see those possible scholarship opportunities.
