Jane Ives Albee Scholarship

2-Year Award

 

Criteria:

  • Candidates must have achieved Admission I status but not Admission II, and be committed to finishing their college education.

  • Candidates may be full-time or part-time students.

  • Candidates must have a declared major in the College of Education and Human Services in elementary education with a personal interest in teaching grades 4-6.

  • Candidates must have a GPA of 2.5 (on a four point scale) or higher. All applicants meeting this criteria shall then be treated equally.  Higher grade point averages will not be a further consideration in the selection process.

  • Financial need shall be considered but shall not be the dominant criterion in the selection process.

  • Other contributions to the University such as (but not exclusively) student committees, debating, music ensembles or government shall be considered in the selection process. (Participation in athletics cannot be considered in the selection process, based on NCAA Division III guidelines.)

  • The donor acknowledges that the final requirement is difficult to quantify but would like to include the following:

    • The donor strongly believes that a teacher should, by his/her lifestyle and actions, provide a positive role model for students in the classroom and the community the teacher resides in. For this reason, two letters of recommendation reflecting an adult judgment (one professor, one individual outside the University) on the applicant’s potential in these two areas are requested to be considered in the selection process.

 

Selection:

  • Applications for this scholarship can be obtained from the Curriculum and Instruction Department, College of Education and Human Services.

  • Final selection will be made by a committee named by the Dean of the College of Education and Human Services.

 

The Award:

  • The award will be renewed for one year, providing the recipient maintains a grade point average of 2.5 or higher. A student requesting renewal must supply the Curriculum and Instruction department with a letter stating the request and provide a current unofficial transcript.

  • No more than two students shall receive scholarship funding during any given year, but a new recipient shall be selected each year.  Therefore, one new recipient should be selected each year, with another receiving funding for the second year of his or her award.

  • The value and/or number of scholarships will be determined annually by the committee with the UW Oshkosh Foundation and will be based upon income available for this purpose.

  • Half of the award will be held at the Cashier’s Office each semester for payment against that semester’s tuition.
