Scholarships

The University League was tremendously proud of the scholarships they were able to provide to worthy and in need students who needed the financial help. In 1983 they were able to give six scholarships away, each totaling five hundred dollars. Obviously in order to receive a scholarship, students had to meet the eligibility requirements. For the University League these requirements were to attend UWGB, indicate their financial need, show a good scholastic record, and carry at least nine credits as an undergraduate student or at least six credits as a graduate student. In edition to these requirements, the fifth and sixth scholarships had more requirements. Those being the ones stated above and being a women twenty-five years or older. The application itself was three pages long and asked questions such as, “Total family expenses for this year?”, “Specify sources of your financial support, giving percentages for each one.”, and “Ages of persons in family unit.”.

Having to pick students for these scholarships was no easy deal for the University League. They had documentation on how to choose the applicants and how to go about it. One of the first things outlined in this document is that the committee members were not able to base eligibility on sex, race, age, geographical location, and the year of the students standing. As of March 28th applications were put out and made available by Second Gear and the Financial Aid office, guidance offices of all Brown County high schools, and advertisements were placed in the two daily newspapers. Applicants had to have their completed forms into the committee by May 6th. From there the committee would go through all the applications, reading them and giving them a score. Once that was completed the twelve finalists who had the highest scores and met the requirements were given an interview with the entire committee near the second last week of May. When six finalists were chosen they given a final meeting in which they were told what they had received and if they had any questions.
