To Renew Scholarship Awards
Scholarships are offered to full-time students only (12+ Credits) consisting of a minimum of 9 core credits with the rest electives which will apply to your degree. Trade or career school students must also be full-time and enrolled in a one to two year program which results in completion of a degree or certified field of study. Students must also be accepted at an accredited college, trade school, or career school. Funding for room and board is offered to full-time students living on campus only. Distance education, including attending classes via internet, is limited to students who attend such classes from the campus of their accredited college, trade school, or career school.
Recipient must submit a letter to the Board of Trustees to let them know how they have done for the semester and to state the amount they are requesting. It is the recipient’s responsibility to submit requests for continuing funding at least 30 days before your school starts in order to facilitate processing.
Submit official transcripts: It is the Recipient’s responsibility to request their official transcripts be sent directly from their educational institution to the Edna P. McCurdy Scholarship Foundation.
If official transcripts are not available when submitting your application unofficial, school generated transcripts may be substituted, but if a scholarship is granted an official transcript must be submitted to the Foundation before funds will be sent to the school.
Best practice is to authorize the registrar’s office to automatically send the transcripts to the Edna P. McCurdy Scholarship Foundation as soon as the grades are posted. Delays in transcript receipt means delays in continued funding.
Please return checklist attached to these guidelines with completed application packet.
Submit official school budget for tuition, fees and books, and room and board from the school
If a continuing applicant does not qualify for a scholarship for a period of time, for example a semester or a year, future applications will be considered as continuing applicants.
If the scholar is put on academic probation by the school, this may be grounds for denying a new award.
These guidelines are provided so that applicants and recipients know what is expected of them. Competition for scholarships from the Foundation is increasing, and applicants will prevent delays by submitting a complete application with all requested documentation.
