Mortar Board Membership Applications – Due February 24th

The University of Washington’s Tolo Chapter of Mortar Board is currently inviting students in their junior year (or equivalent in credits) and seniors with a graduation date no sooner than the end of fall quarter of 2017 to apply for Tolo Chapter’s 2017/2018 class.

Mortar Board is a national honor society recognizing college seniors for their exemplary scholarship, leadership, and service. Mortar Board provides opportunities for continued leadership development, promotes service to colleges and universities, and encourages lifelong contributions to the global community. The UW’s chapter of Mortar Board was founded in 1909 as Tolo Club on campus, and is the UW’s oldest continuing honor society. Tolo alumni include prominent leaders in government and law, medicine, business, technology, education, the arts and literature. Mary Gates, Marion Oliver McCaw, and past Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna are among famous Tolo Chapter alumni.

Each year, up to 40 students are chosen for membership in the Tolo Chapter of Mortar Board. Members of Mortar Board are a diverse group of individuals who have excelled in academics and their personal areas of interest. Therefore, we encourage individuals with distinguished ability and achievement in scholarship, leadership, and service to consider applying for membership in Mortar Board.
