Beginning in the fall of 2009, Drury University will offer a scholarship to students who fulfill requirements of the A+ Schools Program. KSMU's Alvin Chen reports.
Normally, the A+ Program pays for tuition and fees to any Missouri public school or technical college. Chip Parker is the director of admission at Drury University. He says even though Drury is a private school, it wanted to reward those students who excel in the classroom and the community.Besides graduating from an A+ Missouri High School, an eligible student for this scholarship must have a 2.5 cumulative grade point average, spend a certain number of hours doing community and tutorial service, and have a 95 percent attendance rate.Drury students who meet the A+ requirements will receive a $1,000 scholarship each academic year. It is renewable if the student maintains a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. Parker says the award can be stacked with other scholarships.Applications for the scholarship must be submitted by February 1st.For KSMU News, I'm Alvin Chen.
