The Epi-Hab Center for Disability Studies is currently accepting applications for the 2013-2014 Epi-Hab Scholarship program. One student from each of USI's colleges and one student from the University Division/Bachelor of General Studies program will receive $1,000 for tuition, books, or living expenses.
To qualify for the scholarship, applicants must be enrolled in a minimum of three semester hours at USI at the time of application and award, have at least 12 completed semester hours at USI or transferred 12 completed semester hours to USI, and have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.7 (undergraduate) or 3.0 (graduate).
Students who have a disability or assist individuals with disabilities in either their personal lives or workplace are encouraged to apply.
To apply for the scholarship, students must complete an Epi-Hab application, compose an essay describing their proposed field of study and future career plans, and provide two letters of recommendation.
A committee will review each application and will select scholarship recipients based on the content and originality of their essay.
The application deadline is Friday, December 14. Scholarship winners will be announced during Honors Week in March 2013.
