The School of Professional Studies (SPS) is pleased to announce three new scholarship opportunities for students.

Two Dean’s Scholarships will be awarded, one to a full-time student in the amount of $1,500; the other in the amount of $500 to a student enrolled in an SPS program part-time.  The scholarships will be determined  on the basis of financial need, academic merit, and to students within one semester of completing their degree program.

The Bob Martin Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $1,000, will be awarded to an applicant enrolled in an on-line baccalaureate program on a part- or full-time basis and who will be entering his/her last semester prior to completing the on-line degree.  At least one scholarship will be awarded to an applicant meeting this criteria and also on the basis of financial need and academic merit.  The scholarship is in honor of Bob Martin, the late husband of SPS Director of Student Services Dr. Z. Lobley.

Those interested in applying should go to for additional criteria and application forms.  The deadline for submission is April 1, 2011.  Recipients will be notified May 2, 2011.

Recipients will be asked to provide a photo and profile for inclusion in the Commencement Program and to attend the Commencement 2011 Ceremonies on June 7, 2011, at Alice Tully Hall in New York City.
