The W.E.B. DuBois Scholarship
Awarded to one incoming or returning, graduate or undergraduate student who can demonstrate experience in, or working with, populations of color. The scholarship is available only to U.S. citizens or permanent residents. The amount of the award is $1,450/year and is not renewable, although students may reapply for subsequent years.
Applicants should submit a letter of recommendation (incoming students may use their letter of recommendation included in the admission application) and a 1–2 page essay describing the student's current and past involvement with communities of color. Applications may be submitted to the Financial Aid Office and will be reviewed by a committee. Students applying for this scholarship must have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA (for undergraduate students) or a 3.5 (for graduate students). Incoming students' admission applications and departmental recommendations will be considered. Finalists will be interviewed by the scholarship committee. Interviews may be conducted either in person or via phone.
