Outstanding students attending college at a Datatel client college or university are eligible for this week's Scholarship of the Week. The Datatel Scholars Foundation offers three scholarship opportunities for undergraduate students and graduate students currently enrolled at least half-time at an institution serviced by Datatel (a list of eligible schools is available on the Datatel Scholars Foundation website). The foundation offers a general award worth up to $2,400, an award for veterans worth $1,700, and a $2,000 award for returning students who have not been enrolled in college for five years or more.
Applicants for all three awards need to submit an online application, an 800-1000 word scholarship essay, information about civic involvement, and two letters of recommendation. Students apply online, then have their applications reviewed by the Datatel scholarship committee at their institution. Schools nominate up to five students whose applications are then judged at the national level.
