The Edwin W. Gaston, Jr. and Alfred H. Nolle scholarships are for the senior year of undergraduate study. For eligibility, a nominee must be a full-time undergraduate student in the fall of the academic year following his or her nomination in the spring. Two Gaston Scholarships worth $3,000 each and ten Nolle Scholarships worth $2,000 each are awarded each year. All nominees automatically compete for both awards.

The Gaston Scholarship is named for Dr. Edwin Gaston, who served as national president from 1967 to 1979, during a period of great growth for Alpha Chi. The Nolle Scholarship is named for one of the society’s pioneers, Dr. Alfred Nolle (Nah’ lee), who served as secretary-treasurer for 41 years.

Electronic applications are due by February 15.
