Alumni Scholarships





DEADLINE EXTENDED!
Due to the University being closed this week,
the deadline for Alumni Scholarship applications
has been extended to Monday, February 3 at 5:00 p.m.
 
Since 2005, the Alumni Scholarship program has awarded 197 scholarships totaling more than $260,000. Alumni Scholarships are annually awarded to students who are currently enrolled at East Carolina University as full-time* undergraduates (including freshmen) who have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Students who currently receive grants and/or scholarships in excess of $6,000 per year, not including student loans, are not eligible for the Alumni Scholarship Program.

*Full-time, as defined by East Carolina University, are students who register for a minimum of 12 credits and continue to carry at least 12 credits through the end of each semester.

The evaluation of scholarship applicants is based on the following:
  • Demonstrated leadership
  • Service/Volunteerism
  • Recommendation (one signed letter that speaks to the applicant’s involvement in University/community related extracurricular activities or employment)
To apply, please complete and sign the application form (will be posted in November). Be sure to include your Banner ID on each page. Applications must be accompanied by one signed letter of recommendation (University/community-related extra curricular activities or employment). Recommendation must be included with the application or the application will not be considered.

*The application PDF is a fillable form. Adobe Acrobat Reader version 11.0.4 allows users to save data entered into fillable form PDFs as a new document. This allows you to enter data at different times and/or share the document with others for them to enter/edit data.

Alumni Scholarship recipients are selected in the spring of each year. Recipients MUST attend the Scholarship Luncheon on April 26, 2014 to receive their scholarship.

Alumni Scholarships are credited directly to the student’s fee bill from the Cashier’s Office. Half of the scholarship will be awarded in fall and half will be awarded in spring. If a student is on a co-op for a semester, a credit will be applied in one lump sum to the student’s fee bill for the semester they return—unless otherwise notified or discussed, this policy stands. If a student graduates early, only under special circumstances may a credit be applied in one lump sum to the student’s fee bill. If the student does not attend ECU for the following academic year, the scholarship must be forfeited.

Complete applications, including the letter or recommendation, are due to the Taylor-Slaughter Alumni Center (901 East Fifth Street) no later than Monday, February 3, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. By signing your application, you authorize the release of your grades to the Alumni Association so there is no need to include a transcript. We do not review partial applications. Faxed applications are not accepted and will not be reviewed.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the Alumni Center at 800-ECU-GRAD (328-4723) or ecualumni@ecu.edu.
