Last Call for University Community Scholarship Nominations/Applications

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Through generous donations from members of the UNH community, the 14th University Community Scholarship will be awarded in May. This year’s award is approximately $5,000. The size of the endowment that supports the scholarship is now $117,579.  

This scholarship, which reflects the commitment and dedication of all members of the university community, will be awarded to UNH-Durham or UNH-Manchester students.  

This is your opportunity to nominate a deserving undergraduate or graduate student or, if you are a student, apply for the scholarship award. Note the deadlines and instructions. 

Awards are based on academic merit and community involvement. The selection committee is particularly interested in community involvement beyond paid employment and efforts on behalf of academic requirements. The award may be renewed for up to four years; however, the student must re-apply each year. The selection committee includes a faculty member, a PAT staff member, an operating staff member, an Extension educator and a principal administrator. 

Once again, our sincere thanks to all members of the university community who committed their time, energy, and financial resources in support of this scholarship effort. We continue to strive toward our goal of 100 percent participation from members of the university community.  

If you have not yet made your gift to the fund, it’s not too late. You may send your gift via campus or U.S. mail to the University Community Scholarship Fund, c/o UNH Foundation, Elliott Alumni Center, 9 Edgewood Road, Durham, NH, 03824-1987. 

Questions may be directed to scholarship selection committee chair Holly Young at 2-1564.
