Mary Santelmann (Department Chair, 2005-2023)


Thank you to all who were able to attend Mary Santelmann’s celebration at the end of the PNW Symposium, on Tuesday, April 18, 2023.  Hearing so many stories of her compassion and dedication to the WRGP program and all the students, as well as potential applicants, was inspiring!


As Mary has dedicated so much of herself to the program, we would like to give her a gift worthy of her generosity and time, by creating a scholarship in her name.


If Mary has inspired or impacted your academic development, professional career, or if you have a personal friendship with her, please consider contributing to this scholarship at any level that you are comfortable with, whatever the amount.  As we have learned by her example, great things can be accomplished, especially when we work together.


To donate, please give online via this link: Find the ‘I want to give to’ box, type Graduate School Excellence Fund, and after entering your information, note the Santelmann Scholarship in comments/special instructions.
