Applications sought for Alpha Chi Omega art scholarship
Applications are being taken for the Purdue University Alpha Chi Omega chapter scholarship, which is awarded each year to a student whose college career has been touched by the arts.
The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a Purdue student who has demonstrated excellence in visual or performing arts either through a major in arts or as a non-arts major who is eligible through participation in campus arts organizations. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and a previous semester index of 2.5 are eligible. The scholarship will be awarded for use during the 2014-15 academic year.
The application is available here. Interested candidates are asked to submit a completed application and one letter of recommendation no later than 5 p.m. March 3 to Alpha Chi Omega Arts Scholarship, c/o Barbara Dixon, 1290 BRNG.
Faculty, staff, directors or mentors also may nominate a candidate for this award.
A committee of representatives from campus arts organizations and a member of the Alpha Chi Omega Alumnae Board will select the winner. Interviews of the final candidates may be held at the discretion of the committee, which will require a brief presentation of the student's involvement in the arts programs.
