Fulbright-Helvey Endowed Scholarship

This endowment is to be used as scholarships for the use and benefit of deserving women students, either graduate or undergraduate, of Cameron University who are also citizens of the United States. The selection criteria to be considered are:

  • Academic History – Scholarship applicants must be college-bound high school graduates (or perspective graduates) with at least a 2.5 non-weighted high school grade point average. Higher grade point averages will merit additional consideration. Undergraduate student applicants must also have and maintain a grade point average of 2.5. Graduate student applicants must have and maintain a grade point average of 3.0. All recipients must be full-time students (i.e. enrolled in 12 credit hours for undergraduate students or nine credit hours for graduate students).
  • Community Involvement – Additional consideration will be given to those applicants who have demonstrated citizenship and community spirit through their involvement in civic functions and activity throughout their high school years or college years.
  • Extracurricular Activities – An applicant’s involvement in school-sponsored or authorized extracurricular activities such as student government, clubs, and athletics, will be considered.
  • Need – The financial situation of an applicant and her family will be considered. While not in and of itself a determining factor, the financial resources otherwise available to an applicant to fund her college education will be considered.
