Aided by a major gift from alumni John W. and Rosemary Kopel Brown, Freed-Hardeman University has established a new endowed scholarship program to assist Black students in attending the university. The Pursuit of Excellence Diversity Awards will be granted for the first time this fall.
Four students will be selected to receive the renewable grants for the 2021-22 school year. Applications are available from the FHU Office of Admissions and must be returned by April 15, 2021. Factors to be considered in the selection process include academic credentials; leadership ability; participation in school, church and community endeavors; and reputation among peers, youth leaders and faculty. Recipients will be announced in May 2021.
The awards are stackable above all other aid. Variation in the exact amount of the grant may occur and is dependent upon the annual earnings of the endowment.
“We are grateful for the generosity of the Browns in enabling FHU to begin this scholarship program,” FHU President David R. Shannon said. “These awards are geared toward recruiting additional students of color who have leadership qualities and are dedicated to maximizing their potential and academic ability.”
With current funding, 16 students could benefit annually by 2024. Additional funds are being solicited for the scholarship program. Potential donors may contact Kyle Lamb in the FHU advancement office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
