Shallow Sport Boats 2017 Scholarship Criteria
The Shallow Sport Scholarship Committee will award scholarships in the amount of $2000 each to selected undergraduate students attending any accredited college or technical school in the fall of 2017.
Funds will be set up and administered through the Registrar or Financial Office of the student’s designated school. Scholarship monies may only be used for the purpose of tuition, books, lab fees or any other similar costs that have been imposed on the student by the school or one of its classes. It will be the responsibility of the scholarship winners to provide Shallow Sport all information needed to facilitate the funding.
Applications will be accepted from individuals who will be freshman through senior undergraduate students in the fall of 2017. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.25 and provide proof of enrollment as a full-time student (minimum of 12 hours). Online classes will be credited for student hours.
One-half, or 50%, of the total scholarship will be paid per semester with proof of full-time enrollment and GPA provided for each semester. Transcripts and proof of full-time enrollment for the second semester must be provided to Shallow Sport no later than Jan. 15th of each school year.
The Student will be required to submit to the Committee a small portfolio containing the following: A photo of the student, cover letter, transcript of grades to include dual enrollment, and the completed Shallow Sport Scholarship Application along with the required essay. Your essay is extremely important since it will provide the Committee with a better understanding of you and your personal goals and objectives. Scholarships will be awarded based on grades, activities, personal and familial involvement with the Shallow Sport brand, and other factors at the sole discretion of the Shallow Sport Scholarship Committee.
All applicants must be legal residents of the United States. Any applications submitted without all of the above items will be considered incomplete and will not be eligible for consideration.
