The Ronald Walters Scholarship Fund

The Ronald W. Walters Scholarship was announced by Mrs. Patricia Turner Walters in 2010 after the death of her husband, Dr. Ronald W. Walters. An endowed scholarship was established with contributions received from the public and from Mrs. Walters.  In 2012, Mrs. Walter donated money to award a scholarship while the endowed fund grew. The first scholarship of $5,000 was awarded in October 2013.  Since that time, six (6) scholarships have been awarded.

The Scholarship is awarded to a Howard University junior or senior majoring in Political Science with a grade point average of 3.0 or better. The scholarship funds can be used for tuition, room and  board, and books.   However,  the entire award cannot be used exclusively for books.  The scholarship is based in part on the need of the student for financial assistance.  Each finalist for the scholarship has to write an essay on a topic related to the work or life of Dr. Ronald W. Walters. For more information on the scholarship, please contact the Ronald W. Walters Center.
