Dear Scholarship Applicant,
Marywood University welcomes your graduate scholarship application for studies in non-cohort programs. A complete scholarship application consists of an online scholarship application and an essay typed in Microsoft Word submitted electronically. The complete scholarship application should be supported by a complete application for University Admissions by the above deadline. You are encouraged to read the directions below completely before you begin the application process.
Awards will be made on the basis of three factors: academic promise, normally represented by a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.00 or a graduate GPA of 3.50; professional focus and commitment; and financial need (required for specific scholarships).
File a complete admissions application. It is fully expected that each prospective student who is a scholarship applicant will have a complete admissions application on file with the Office of Graduate Admissions by February 14, 2013. The admissions application provides the supporting documentation necessary to evaluate a scholarship application.
Complete the scholarship application electronically. The scholarship application itself is on a secure server. You must press "yes" if your browser asks you if you wish to display secure items, otherwise Marywood University will not receive any of the information you type on the application upon submission.
If you declare full-time status on the scholarship application, enrollment in nine or more credits in the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters or what your graduate department defines as full enrollment in structured programs, and are awarded a full-time status scholarship and enroll for less than full-time registration in either of these semesters your scholarship award will be reduced.
If you declare part-time status on your scholarship application, The Committee on Graduate Scholarships expects part-time status students who are scholarship recipients to enroll in and maintain at least six credits in the fall semester and at least six credits in the spring semester. Part-time status scholarship recipients who fail to meet this requirement in a semester will have their scholarships rescinded for that semester.
Email a scholarship essay as a Microsoft Word document. Please type an essay (300-500 words) clarifying the relationship between your life-goals and graduate education at Marywood. Your essay will also be judged on depth of expression and use of the English language. Your essay must clearly address the following areas:
Email the essay in Microsoft Word to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your essay should contain your name, social security number, and field of study at the top of the page.
If you have any questions about completing these forms, please contact Mr. Frank Falcone at email@example.com or (570) 348-6211 ext. 2356.
Scholarship selection results will be mailed electronically in early April 2013. Scholarships are available for use beginning Fall 2013; they may only be used to defray tuition for Marywood courses.
Students awarded graduate assistantships for the 2013-2014 academic year who accept those positions are not eligible to receive scholarship awards as well.
All scholarship applications from prospective students received after the close of business on 2/14/2013 will be considered as late applications. Marywood University will review these applications on a discretionary, funds-available basis. By University policy we cannot accept late scholarship applications from current students and prospective international students.
Neither scholarship nor assistantship awards are renewed automatically each year. It is the responsibility of the student to reapply each academic year.
If you have questions about the graduate scholarship and assistantship programs at Marywood University please contact me.
