As I’ve mentioned many times this semester already, spring is a time of growth and great opportunity. Below is information about another great opportunity for your student. Please check it out. This really is a great deal (again, this info is courtesy of everyone’s favorite developmental advisor, Erica Osborne).
Did you know that current Bellarmine students can apply for additional scholarship aid for the 2010-2011 school year? Check out the information below for the 2010-2011 Presidential Achievement Scholarship!
Who is eligible? All Bellarmine undergraduate students who are working towards their first degree, have completed one semester at the time of application, and are in good academic standing (cumulative GPA of at least 2.0) are eligible. Students already receiving full scholarships are INELIGIBLE for this award.
What are the criteria? Awards will be made on the quality of the entire application, including GPA, essays,
involvement and other extracurricular activities, and recommendations. Successful applicants submit well thought-out and distinctive responses to the essay questions. Students are also required to obtain two recommendations – one recommendation from a professor who knows his/her work and a second from any other faculty member, staff members, or administrator of his/her choosing.
How much are the awards? Scholarships range from $500 to $2,000 per year. Once a student receives the scholarship, it is renewable for a three-year duration, or until graduation. To be eligible for renewal, students must maintain the approximate GPA they had at the time of award.
How do I apply? Access the application online through the student portal (my.bellarmine.edu) beginning
Monday, February 15, 2010.
When are applications due? All materials must be submitted online by Wednesday, April 14, 2010. Scholarships will be awarded during the week of May 10—14, 2010.
