Ruth S. Cox Memorial Scholarship

Help support future teachers in memory of Ruth S. Cox!

The Ruth S. Cox Memorial Scholarship was established in 2019 at Western Washington University’s renowned Woodring College of Education to provide support for future teachers. The scholarship gives preference to students with financial need and may be used to pay any costs related to educational expenses, including, but not limited to, tuition, books, materials and supplies.


Ruth was dedicated to education. As a teacher herself, Ruth believed fiercely in the power of education to transform lives, and she generously supported countless students in the pursuit of learning. Her remarkable commitment and generosity were not only inspiring, but she empowered students to believe in themselves and enabled them to achieve higher levels of education.


This scholarship was established by Rory and Ali to honor the incredible impact that Ruth had in their lives. It is their hope that this scholarship will carry on her legacy and help the next generation of teachers achieve their dreams far into the future. Since its establishment, Rory and Ali have raised and contributed over $50,000 to its endowment. We invite you to support education through a contribution to the Ruth S. Cox Memorial Scholarship.
