JASPER — The Vincennes University Jasper Foundation created the Dubois County Scholastic Excellence Award to get qualified students started on the VU Jasper campus with zero out-of-pocket expenses and without the need for loans.
VU Jasper freshman Rhetta Sternberg was one of 13 recipients awarded a full-tuition scholarship in August. The Huntingburg resident has aspirations of becoming a high school social studies teacher.
The VU Jasper Foundation is accepting applications for the 2020-21 scholarships.
Each DCSEA recipient will receive full tuition (up to 15 credits per semester) and regularly assessed fees for the fall and spring semesters; a $500 bookstore stipend per semester for books and supplies; a laptop computer; and access to a dedicated honors study lounge equipped with an interactive collaborative table and Wi-Fi.
Recipients also will participate in 10 community service hours each semester during the 2020-21 academic year.
The scholarship is available to any 2020 Dubois County graduate with a cumulative high school GPA of 3.5 or higher. To qualify, applicants must apply to VU Jasper and complete the scholarship application by Jan. 17; complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid by April 15; qualify for in-state tuition; be a full-time degree-seeking student at VU Jasper for the 2020-21 academic year; maintain a semester GPA at VU Jasper of 3.0 or above; and complete a transfer back form.
