  • Scholarship Description
  • The purpose of the Ashbrook Scholar Program is to assist students in acquiring the intellectual and moral virtues required for thoughtful citizenship. We do this through sustained reflection on the writings of those who have thought most deeply and comprehensively about human nature and political organization, and the opinions, character, and actions of those who have most remarkably practiced the political art.

    All Ashbrook Scholars are awarded a modest annual scholarship toward their studies at Ashland University, renewable each year based on merit. There are also several other scholarships for which Ashbrook Scholars are eligible. In addition to tuition scholarships, Ashbrook Scholars frequently receive financial assistance for travel expenses to seminars and cost-of-living stipends for internships.

    While financial assistance may be part of what attracts students to the program, for most it is not what keeps them in the program. The high retention rate of Ashbrook Scholars has more to do with the challenge of meeting our high expectations, the rewarding sense of accomplishment in meeting those challenges, and the bonds they form with other Ashbrook Scholars, faculty, and staff.

    For more information and to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

Harvard Supporters Back University in Admissions Trial

October 16, 2018

by Susan Dutca

Harvard students and alumni will testify in support of Harvard during the admissions trial this week, defending its "race-conscious admissions policy" against claims that it discriminates against Asian-American applicants. The trial is the latest chapter in a lawsuit filed in 2014 by Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA).

Harvard University has been accused of "balancing its undergraduate classes to ensure that it had admitted its desired share of students of each race and ethnicity" and also for penalizing Asian-American applicants by "systematically giving them lower scores on a metric admissions officers use to measure personality." Adam Mortara, a lawyer representing SFFA, stated that the university scores applicants in four categories: academic achievement, athletic ability, extracurriculars, and personality. While referencing admissions data, he concluded that, despite their higher academic performance, Asian-Americans are admitted at lower rates. [...]
