Ten $1,000 scholarships will be awarded $500 in the fall 2015 and $500 in spring 2016.  New this year ten $1,500 scholarships will be awarded at $500 per semester starting in the fall of 2015 with an additional $500 awarded for the fall of 2016, if qualifications continue to be met.

Continuing the tradition of the past two years, one scholarship will be designated for students in an arts related field.
