I signed and delivered the check to WSU today; so I guess it’s official! The “Take a Little, Leave a Lot” Scholarship will be awarded for the first time, Spring 2012, to a student in the College of Education at Wichita State University. That student will receive $1,000 for the semester, since I sort of missed the Fall semester. Next year, the funds will go to a different college (probably Engineering), and the recipient will receive $500 for the Fall, and another $500 for the Spring.
- No recipient will be excluded from consideration based on race, religion, color, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, status as a veteran, or disability.
- $1,000 scholarship to be awarded each academic year, even amounts by semesters.
- Award will be made without regard to financial need.
- Recipient must have and maintain a minimum 3.5 grade point average.
- Candidates will explain, via one page essay, how the support from this fund and the eventual fulfillment of their academic endeavors will lead them to create a better world for current and future generations. Candidates should describe how, by way of great intellect and innovation, they will create new or improve existing educational processes, methodologies, and/or learning environments. Successful candidates will characterize the manner in which their impact will directly influence a more cognitive, cognizant, competent, and conscience population.
- The Scholarship Office, a department within the Division of Campus Life and University Relations of Wichita State University, will administer the scholarship and make the award based on recommendations submitted by the College or School receiving the scholarship for that given year.
- The scholarship may not be renewed.
