University Staff Senate FALL Scholarship 2013
Beginning JUNE 10, 2013, the University Staff Senate will begin accepting applications for its Fall Scholarship. The deadline for receipt of the entire typed application packet will be 4:30 PM – JUNE 28, 2013.
The University Staff Senate has established a fund to provide scholarship awards to qualifying SIUE students. To be eligible for consideration for a scholarship award, you must meet the following criteria:
You must be the son, daughter, grandchild, spouse, or civil union partner of a presently employed or retired Civil Service (excluding non-status) or Professional Staff employee (excluding appointments of less than 50% and term appointments of less than six months) of SIUE.
You must meet admissions requirements for undergraduate study at SIUE.
The scholarship award will be applied to your university account for the Semester. This award will be reported to the Office of Student Financial Aid to be considered in evaluating your overall financial aid package. Should this amount combined with other awards or payments cause a credit balance on your account, a refund check will be mailed to you from the Bursar's Office.
All application materials are required to be typed.
Please return your completed typed application to the University Governance Office, Box 1252, Rendleman Building, Room 0103, by 4:30 PM – JUNE 28, 2013.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the University Governance Secretary, Vicki Kruse at 650-2770, or Norris Manning at 650-5450.
Best wishes for your continued academic progress.
