The Youngstown State University Retirees Association, an organization of retired YSU faculty and staff, raised funds last year to establish a scholarship endowment.
An endowment has been established through the YSU Foundation, allowing the scholarship to be awarded annually in perpetuity, based on income generated from that endowment.
The award amount for this first-time, unrestricted scholarship is $500.
Eligibility requirements for students wishing to apply for the scholarship are minimum overall grade-point average of 2.7 for YSU undergraduate and 3.0 for YSU graduate degree applicants, junior or senior student with a declared major or graduate student pursuing a degree. Extracurricular activities, accomplishments and work experience also may be considered.
Three letters of recommendation, an unofficial transcript and an essay of about 500 words titled “My YSU Experience” must be submitted.
The scholarship application may be found on the YSU Financial Aid website at www.ysu.edu. The deadline for applications is Feb. 15.
