Student applicants must be in good academic standing, with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Student applicants must be at least one full academic year away from graduation. Students in their final year of studies are INELIGIBLE to apply.
These scholarship awards are made possible via private philanthropy from:
Mrs. Nancy Meyer
Mr. James A. Schleif and Mr. William H. Morley
Scholarship awardees are required to write a thank you to the scholarship donor(s) before the award will be processed. Awardees are expected to coordinate with the Nelson Institute’s Director of Advancement & Donor Relations regarding these letters.
