In all cases, the criteria for each scholarship will be the basis for selecting the recipients. However, unless specified by the scholarship criteria, preference in awarding the scholarships goes to: (1) students with a cumulative grade point average above a 3.0, (2) students who will have earned a minimum of 56 credits by the end of the spring semester in which application is made, and (3) students who have been admitted to the College of Education teacher education program or are a kinesiology major. Monies for the scholarships are made available to the students as an offset against tuition, fees, housing, or other expenses affiliated with university attendance in the following fall and spring semesters.
