Fall Quarter Honorary Scholarships
Ralph Waldo Emerson Award (4.5 units)
Ralph Waldo Emerson was the “Father of American Transcendentalism”, and a major influence on Robert Waterman as he created the original curriculum for Quimby/Southwestern College (especially his essay “The American Scholar”). Emerson believed in the unity of all beings, in the pre-eminence of the Inner Teacher or Knower, and in drawing wisdom and compassion from one’s own soul, in connection with The One, or Divinity.
President’s Award (4.5 units)
Southwestern College is committed to personal transformation as key to the process of moving our society forward into a more loving, compassionate world that honors and celebrates diversity. This personal change process is not simple. It is not a straight line, but rather it is a circular journey of introspection and sharing, of experience and reflection, of being willing to examine one’s own implicit beliefs and sit with the open-hearted curiosity necessary to truly hear another’s life story. This transformational journey is full of challenges as well as the joy of sudden insight and understanding. The President’s Award recognizes the important work each student must do to become a change agent capable of bringing their unique loving presence and light into the world. Where are you on this journey?
