Provost Scholarship Fund
VSU offers excellent scholarship opportunities to students of high academic achievement. For example, upon admission to the University, first-year students who have demonstrated a record of outstanding academic achievement in high school are invited to become participants in the University's Honors Program as either a Presidental Scholar or Provost Scholar.
To assist in attracting the bes t and brightest students to the University, in 2005, the Chapter formally established the Washington, DC Chapter Provost Scholarship Fund, as a scholarship operating account with the VSU Foundation. This fund is used to help the University attract and provide scholarships to high school students from the Washington, DC metropolitan area who meet the criteria to receive the $3,500 Provost Scholarship. The amount and number of scholarships that are awarded by the University's Scholarship Committee is based solely on the amount the Chapter is able to give annually. All awards are made in the name of the Washington, DC Chapter Provost Scholarship Fund.
Funds from this scholarship are based on the following criteria:
- Recipient(s) must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and composite SAT of 1000 or ACT of 21, from high school;
- Recipient(s) must be from Washington, DC, or the Maryland counties of Prince Georges or Montgomery; and
- In the event the University cannot find a student who meets the criteria set forth above, the University can choose any student from Washington, DC, or the Maryland counties of Prince Georges or Montgomery who will be matriculating at the University.
Responsibilities of Recipient
- Recipient(s) can renew this scholarship for up to three additional years if the recipient maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.0, earns at least 30 credit hours each year, participates in the University Honors Program, and maintains residence on campus.
