Rudolf and Jimi Vernie Scholarship (Deadline: June 15th)

Dr. Rudolf Vernie was Ellensburg’s only pediatrician for more than 30 years. He was also Director of the Infirmary at Central Washington University in the 1960’s. He completed his medical studies in Leiden, The Netherlands, and came to the United States in 1954. He moved to Ellensburg in 1959 and continued his medical practice till his retirement in 1997.

The Rudolf and Jimi Vernie Scholarship was established by family and friends in honor of Dr. Vernie’s lifetime of service to the children and families of Kittitas County.

The Scholarship is awarded each year to an eligible recipient for the tuition and mandatory fee equivalence for one standard academic quarter. This amount, typically around $2,300, would be distributed over three academic quarters. If no students are eligible for the scholarship, it will be carried over to the following academic year. All scholarship applications must be submitted in their entirety by the deadline, June 15th, for consideration in the Fall Quarter of that year.
