The UCT Heaston Scholarship was established to help young people achieve their dreams of a college education. The program consists of three scholarships to be granted to three deserving students annually; each covering four years of undergraduate education. The scholarships are:
A major criterion for the scholarships is for applicants to show evidence of hard work and overcoming obstacles to achieve their goals. Applicants will need to discuss their academic careers and extracurricular activities, and provide examples of hard work, challenges they have had to face, and persistence in the face of adversity. Additionally, we require examples of commitment to community service. Top consideration will be given to students wishing to pursue an education degree in order to teach special needs students, but applicants entering other degree programs are encouraged to apply.
The Heaston scholarships will be awarded to students with the equivalent of high school senior status. Students must be enrolled and entering a college program in the coming academic year. All funds disbursed are to be used for school-related expenses. Applications are due February 1 and scholarship awards will be announced March 31.
A downladable application can be found under the "Applications" tab on this website.
The next meeting of the CASF will be held on Sunday, April 6, 2014 - 12:30pm at Cricket's Restaurant in Smithfield, RI.
If you know of a student worthy of a scholarship please direct them to this website and download an application under the "Application" tab and send the completed application to PSC Al Maddalena.
