New Scholarship Match Program for Incoming FreshmenPosted Jun. 13, 2012
In an effort to assist more students in their pursuit of a college degree, Kent State University at Stark in Jackson Township has announced a Scholarship Match Program. The campus will match any outside scholarship that an incoming freshman brings to Kent State Stark for the 2012 fall semester, up to a total of $1,000.
To be eligible for this award, the applicant must meet the following criteria:
- Be admitted to Kent State Stark for the fall 2012 semester as a new incoming freshman.
- Be enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program. Students may choose one of the Stark Campus’ 17 bachelor’s degrees or any of Kent State University’s 218 undergraduate choices of study.
- Be registered for a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester that are designated as Stark Campus courses. Students who are registered at the Kent Campus or registered in any of Kent State University’s other regional campus’s courses (even if they meet on the Stark Campus) are not eligible for this scholarship matching program.
- The student’s outside scholarship must be designated to be awarded in the fall 2012 semester or the 2012/13 academic year.
The maximum amount that a student can receive in the Kent State Stark Scholarship Match Program is $1,000. If a student receives more than $1,000 in outside scholarships, the matching funds will not exceed $1,000. The award will be divided between the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semesters, even if the outside scholarship award is only for the fall semester. This award is not renewable.
This award is applicable only to tuition charges. If a combination of this award and any other tuition scholarship exceeds the cost of tuition at Kent State Stark, the award may be reduced or canceled. All external scholarships reported on the application form are considered as part of your total financial aid package for the 2012-13 academic year and may result in changes to your current financial aid package.
