The Blake and Bailey Family Endowed Scholarship is awarded in the fall of each year to a student who demonstrates outstanding academic achievement and university spirit. The $1,000 scholarship provides support for tuition fees, housing and course-related expenses.
Initial Selection: At the beginning of the fall semester the Registrar will identify the top five students with the highest cumulative grade point average in each of the University’s academic programs who:
- Have a minimum of 12 credits and a maximum of 30 credits remaining to graduate.
- Are not already receiving any other sponsorship or scholarship.
- Have no academic strikes.
The Blake and Bailey Family Endowed Scholarship: Based on student applications, University service, financial need and other information, a selection committee comprised of faculty and staff will award the Blake and Bailey Family Endowed Scholarship for $1,000 to one of these students. The winner of the Scholarship will be named in the annual Commencement program.
Blake and Bailey Family Achievement Award: Assuming satisfactory completion of their studies, at the next Commencement, the top five students from each major will be presented with certificates naming them as winners of the Blake and Bailey Family Achievement Award.
