U School is pleased to be offering the Chancellor Emerita Linda Hughes U School Award for students who have gone through the U School program and are now undergraduate students at the U of A. The intention of the award is to support students (U School Alumni) in demographics underrepresented in post secondary education.
One $1000 scholarship will be awarded to a recipient each year. The recipient must be a continuing, full time student for the upcoming academic year, maintain a 2.0 GPA, demonstrate extracurricular involvement, and must have participated in the U School program as an elementary or junior high student. Applicants will need to list the grade and school they participated in U School with.
Students who wish to apply can do so here. A short essay, as well as a reference letter will be required. Essays may be pasted into the form box, or uploaded as a second page to your reference letter, directly into the form. The award will remain open until September 14th. All applicants will be notified on the status of their application.
Please contact the U School Program Lead with any questions regarding the award itself, supporting the fund, and/or the application.
