School Scholarship Applications Due February 15, 2013
SLIS students have until February 15, 2013 to apply for scholarships administered by the School. Students who have been admitted to the School but have not started classes are eligible to apply for scholarships. We encourage all SLIS students to apply!
- The list of School scholarships may be found at: http://students.slis.wayne.edu/students/scholarships.php
- The application form for scholarships may be found at: http://slis.wayne.edu/forms/scholarship_app.pdf
- The application for the School travel award may be found at: http://slis.wayne.edu/forms/travel_award_application.pdf
- Finally, the application for the School writing awards may be found at: http://slis.wayne.edu/forms/student_writing_award.pdf
Students must submit a 250 word statement on why they should receive a scholarship. All students who apply will automatically be considered for the LIS General Scholarships.
Since students can apply for only two SLIS-administered scholarships, we encourage students to read the criteria carefully. Some scholarships have precise location or career goal requirements so that any student who qualifies will face less competition than is the case for the more general scholarships.
We also encourage students, especially those with higher GPA’s, to apply for the Wayne State University Graduate Professional Scholarships whose details may be found at: http://gradschool.wayne.edu/funding/sources.php The Graduate Professional Scholarship (GPS) provides full tuition funding for Fall 2013 and Winter 2014 semesters. The scholarship application requires recommendation letters so that students need to get an earlier start on completing their applications. The application deadline for the GPS is March 1, 2013.
