TRiO Upward Bound Alumni Connections
Apply for the TRiO UB@BU Textbook Scholarship
Dear TRiO UB Alumni attending Bloomsburg University,
Several years ago a TRiO Upward Bound scholarship was established for program alumni who enrolled at Bloomsburg University. The scholarship is an account at the university store for the fall 2013 semester. This has helped past recipients purchase textbooks and school supplies.
We are pleased to offer two scholarships of approximately $250 each as a result of donations from alumni and friends of TRiO UB@BU. In order to be eligible you must have 1) participated in Bloomsburg University’s TRiO Upward Bound program, 2) currently attend Bloomsburg University, 3) be at least a sophomore at time of application and 4) demonstrate financial need.
Please note, if you are ineligible to apply specifically for the TRiO UB@BU scholarship this year due to your freshman status, this is an annual scholarship so you can be sure to apply this time next year!
If you are both eligible and interested, please complete both the Bloomsburg University Scholarship Application 2013-2014 (Important: Before completing this application, go to www.bloomu.edu/aid ; click on BU Scholarships under Apply for Aid tab; read award criteria and application instructions!) and the TRiO Upward Bound scholarship Application and return both forms to Theresa Baylor in the TRiO Upward Bound office by 4:30 PM on February 8, 2012 for consideration. Applications will not be considered if received after the deadline. Notification will be made in early spring.
Please contact the TRiO Upward Bound office at (570) 389-4280 with any questions regarding this specific scholarship, all other scholarship inquiries should be directed to the Financial Aid Office. Best wishes for continued success this spring semester.
