What is the Rosa Beth Gibson Scholarship?

The University of Puget Sound Staff Senate awards the Rosa Beth Gibson book scholarships to staff members, spouses, domestic partners, and dependent children working toward a degree or completion of a program at any level, to include graduate work. The applicant may be attending Puget Sound or another university, college or vocational school either full- or part-time. The scholarship was established in honor of Rosa Beth Gibson, former associate vice president for human resources, upon her retirement in November 2011.
