We wish to call your attention to the Mount Holyoke College Employees Social Committee Scholarship Fund in honor of David B. Truman, president emeritus. A $200 scholarship is to be awarded each year to a qualified daughter, son, or other dependent child of a Mount Holyoke staff employee who is not eligible for the Mount Holyoke subsidy for tuition costs. The scholarship is to be used to further the student's education at an accredited school for postsecondary education. This award is to be administered in consultation with the director of student financial services. Determining factors are educational goals, high school achievement, and character. A candidate must be a high school senior.
Applications for the scholarship may be obtained at the Office of Student Financial Services in Skinner Hall. For more information, contact our office at x2789 or x2291.
The completed scholarship application must be returned to student financial services no later than May 9.
Graduating seniors: all application materials for the Clio-Melpomene Prize are due in the Career Development Center (CDC) by Thursday, May 1. Information on applying is available on the newsgroup mhc.announce and in the CDC library.
