Dr. and Mrs. Howe have established a four-year scholarship to a Buffalo State student who has done and will commit to doing significant volunteer work to address community and social issues. Candidates must meet the following criteria:
The amount of the scholarship will be $5,000, which can only be used toward non-tuition costs billed by the college. The scholarship will be used first for qualified costs of attendance (mandatory fees, required books, and supplies). Any remaining funds will be used for nonqualified costs of attendance billed by the college (including required health insurance, on-campus housing, meal plans).
Contingent on the donors' funding, each scholarship is renewable for up to three additional years provided the recipient:
1. be enrolled as a full-time student (at least 12 credit hours) each semester;
2. maintains a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher each semester;
3. completes 200 hours of community engagement annually (6-8 hours per week) and work to engage other students in community service in coordination with the CCE; and
4. demonstrates excellence in his/her community engagement and leadership activities and promise for the future as evaluated by the director of the CCE.
