Each student will be awarded $1,500 per semester for two semesters. Scholarship requirements include a minimum ACT score of 24 and a 3.0 cumulative GPA. Applicants had to submit three letters of reference. Consideration is also given to evidence of leadership.
The scholarship may be renewed annually, but the endowment is conditional upon student involvement in the areas of academics, leadership, networking, recruitment and service. Each Patterson Scholar is required to attend at least one Spotlight event or other department recuitment event to meet with students and answer questions about management, marketing and international business to fulfill the service obligation.
Student Scholars are also expected to take on leadership roles in campus student organizations and strive to maintain a high level of academic success.
“They are the face of the department,” said Beth Polin, chair of the Patterson Scholarship Committee.
