University of Wisconsin Oshkosh students have the opportunity to apply for or be nominated for four scholarship awards.

The Chancellor’s Award for Excellence, a prestigious recognition, acknowledges senior students who possess high academic and leadership qualities and who demonstrate a commitment to the ideals of excellence and service to others.

The recipient must have completed 90 credit hours of which the last 30 were earned at UW Oshkosh, earned a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and have an anticipated graduation date of no later than December 2008.

The criteria for this award include academic performance, university-related service (excluding athletics participation) and community involvement. Recipients receive a cash award and a certificate.

All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to nominate senior students for this recognition. Self-nominations will not be accepted.

Two scholarship awards also are given during spring semester that recognize students with outstanding qualities and accomplishments. Students may apply for the Gladys J. Larson Scholarship Award but must be nominated for the Roger E. Guiles Leadership/Scholarship Award.

The Gladys J. Larson Scholarship Award is for second-semester freshmen (12-29 semester hours of credit) with a strong desire to continue their education and who have earned a grade point average of at least 2.9 in their first full-time semester of university studies.

The Roger E. Guiles Leadership/Scholarship Award is given to a student in his/her fourth semester at UW Oshkosh who has completed at least 46, but no more than 59, credits and has exhibited leadership in student activities and good scholarship.

The Sister Irene Kohne Scholarship is for full- or part-time students who have completed a minimum of 30 credits. Students must be Fond du Lac County residents and demonstrate involvement in community service projects, charitable organizations and/or extracurricular activities.

Information regarding each award and appropriate forms can be obtained at the Office of Student Affairs, Dempsey 148. The deadline for all awards is Friday, Feb. 15, 2008.
