CMU Women's Connection Endowed Scholarship
Established in 2007 by CMU Women's Connection supporters, income from this renewable scholarship will help to support a part-time or full-time CMU student who is a single parent *or a student from a single-parent* household. The applicant must demonstrate a financial need and have a minimum GPA of 2.75. (*"Single parent" defined as a sole parental figure who shoulders the day-to-day responsibilities of raising a child without any assistance, financial or otherwise, from the other parent or partner, regardless of current or previous marital status to one another.)
The financial challenges faced by single parents today often result in sacrificing the pursuit of a college education. It is our sincere wish that we assist someone to fulfill his or her desire for a higher education who might not otherwise be able to make this a reality.
Reasons for Giving
CMU currently provides some students with assistance, but these awards are not keeping pace with the needs of our students. Additional needs-based awards make it possible for more students to enroll at CMU and fulfill their dreams.
