Billie Jean Wiebe Memorial Scholarship

Dear FPU Family,

As we mark the beginning of this New Year in mourning and remembrance of our recently passed colleague Billie Jean Wiebe, Ph.D., we want to update you on efforts to create a lasting educational legacy in her honor. The Academic and Advancement teams are pleased to announce the launch of the Billie Jean Wiebe Memorial Scholarship. We invite the FPU community to participate by considering a gift in Billie Jean’s name that will benefit future generations of humanities scholars.

Contingent on adequate donor participation, it is the goal of the university that this becomes an endowed scholarship ($10,000 minimum), providing a perpetual source of financial aid for future students. 

Donations to the scholarship can be made either online or by check. To donate online go to To donate by check, make the check payable to Fresno Pacific University, with the notation “Billie Jean Wiebe Memorial Scholarship” in the memo section of the check, and mailed to University Advancement, Fresno Pacific University, 1717 S. Chestnut Avenue, Fresno, CA 93702-4709.   


Your presence among us will be missed, Billie Jean.
