AMOUNT Each individual stipend will be up to the amount of $1000 per year and will be paid to the chosen school. Schools will have an agreement to return the full or prorated amount of the award should the student fail to complete the year of study for which the stipend was awarded.
EXPECTATIONS The Scholarship Subcommittee reserves the right to expect and insist upon regular attendance at classes, consistent with the rules and requirements of the chosen school, maintain a grade point average of 2.75 and not be on disciplinary or academic probation. Renewal of the scholarship will be offered after confirmation of these criteria by both an academic adviser and faculty member.
APPLICATION AND SELECTION PROCESS To apply, students must complete THREE parts. Part 1 is this online application with uploaded essay. Part 2 is to submit via email or mail copies of the applicant and applicant’s parents (if the student is listed as their dependent) to St. Luke’s Church, 219 Chunn’s Cove, Asheville, 28805 by May 10th, 2019. Part 3 is to have additional information mailed to the above address, including the academic summary page sent by the applicant’s records department (counselor), a one page essay, AND three references.
Students must notify the Scholarship Committee of the receipt of any other educational grants or scholarship assistance as soon as the student receives notification of those awards. Scholarship recipients will be selected on an objective basis using academic criteria. Financial need and motivation will be determined by the committee using information from this application, therefore applications without complete Federal and NC State tax forms for both 2017 and 2018 will not be considered. A personal interview may be required.
NOTIFICATION OF AWARDS Scholarship recipients and their schools will be notified in June.
PAYMENT OF AWARDS Payment of the scholarship awards will be made at the beginning of the school year or at the beginning of each semester. Checks will be made payable to the school for the student's account and will be forwarded to the financial aid office. Remaining balances will be returned to St. Luke's Episcopal Church Scholarship Committee.
REPAYMENT Although there will not be a formal request for repayment of the scholarship funds, each recipient will be asked to consider a donation to the fund when he/she has become gainfully employed.
Questions or problems with any part should be directed to St. Luke's Church Scholarship Committee. You can email email@example.com or call Sarah Cain at 828-450-6476.
