|Amount||One award of $7,000.|
Provides support to an undergraduate student with academic promise who may not necessarily be the best student in terms of grade point average. Academic promise is defined as clear potential to succeed in a relevant graduate or professional program following graduation and demonstrated accomplishments, leadership and creativity in the student's chosen field. The recipient must be a declared major in either biology, chemistry, computer science, materials science, geology, geography or physics and astronomy, and be a sophomore or above.
Financial need is required.
The scholarship should be open for consideration each year, but could be renewable to the same student twice if the student submits a new application.
|Application Procedure||Go to the Gold for Blugolds Scholarship Network. Complete the scholarship application that corresponds with your major(s). The information gathered through that scholarship application will automatically enter you into consideration for all College of Arts & Sciences scholarships for which you are eligible.|
The chair/director of each department/program will select up to two finalists from all of the applications their office receives. Finalists from each department/program are sent to the A&S dean's office by April 1st. A packet of departmental/program finalists' applications (up to two from each department/program) should be sent to each of the chairs/directors for final ranking. The Arts & Sciences Scholarship Committee, composed of the chairs/directors of all the departments/programs involved, and chaired by the dean or dean's designee, meets in early April to select the overall finalist for the award.
Over time, the scholarship recipient should rotate among the disciplines, but a precise rigidity is not necessary.
The award is to go to one student and should not be divided between two students.
|Notification||The dean will notify the recipient by letter.|
|Thank You||The recipient should write a letter of thanks and deliver it to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.|
