It is the desire of the Board of Trustees to create and maintain a scholarship program to supplement the College's Presidential Scholarship. The scholarship will be designated as the Academic Excellence Scholarship, and applications are to be accepted from Beaver County residents who graduate from any high school in Beaver County.
The scholarship is to be a full two-year tuition scholarship with initial and continuing eligibility requirements. One scholarship will be awarded annually, based on class rank, to one graduate from each high school in Beaver County who was not eligibile for the Presidential Scholarship. Students applying for the scholarship must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 and have not met the eligibilty requirements for the Presidential Scholarship. The Board directs the President to develop procedures for implementation of the scholarship program. The procedures are to require that students apply for financial aid, delineate the procedures for application and selection, and establish requirements for continuing eligibility.
The President will report annually to the Board on the effectiveness of the program and make recommendations for its continuation.
