- All scholarship recipients must be enrolled full-time.
- Provisional consideration for all scholars: “If an endowed scholarship recipient does not meet the original 3.0 GPA requirement, the Board reserves the right to place this student on probation for one semester, only if the cumulative GPA of 3.0 can be mathematically obtained by the following semester. If it is determined that the cumulative GPA of 3.0 is not mathematically obtainable the award will be immediately terminated. This probation option will only be allowed once during the entire scholarship and college enrollment period.
- Students who have acquired sufficient hours for graduation and need no more than six (6) semester hours to graduate at the end of their junior year may be granted a summer school stipend not to exceed ½ of the scholarship. The scholarship is terminated after the summer session.
ALL of the above criteria must be met, or the student forfeits the funds. It is extremely important that recipients understand that they MUST complete the service component and CANNOT fall below the required cumulative grade point average.
Zip files and documents sent separately will not be accepted.
