Call for Graduate Women Scholarship Applications 2014-15 School Year
The 2014-2015 Women's Scholarship Committee Scholarship applications for graduate women students are available in paper form at the Administrative Assistant's desk in the English Department in Nethery Hall or through e-mail attachment by writing Dr. Stella Greig at email@example.com. Please put "WSC Scholarships" in the subject line. Completed applications are due March 24.
There are two kinds of application forms. One form is for the Steele Scholarship, which is for women who have served as cross-cultural missionaries at least 4 years and who are working on a graduate degree in any of the university schools. The other form is a general application for women working on a graduate degree in any of the university schools.
General application forms will be considered for several different named scholarships (which have their own criteria--e.g., must be: a Seminary student, a School of Education in educational or counseling psychology student, or a student working on a music degree), as well as the more general WSC Advisory Scholarship and Honored Women Scholarship. To give applicants the best chance to receive an award, the committee will determine for which scholarship an application fits best. Along with the application form, students will need to request letters of recommendation from two different individuals (either from two professors or a professor and a work supervisor). The letters of recommendation should include the person's assessment of the professor/supervisor as to the worthiness of the applicant in terms of scholarship, work habits and a brief assessment as to the likelihood of the student to meet her goals. The scholarship funds awarded are to be applied towards tuition. Questions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
