Now Accepting Applications for Undergraduate Scholarships

Each year the Undergraduate Committee in the Department of English chooses at least twelve of its undergraduate majors to receive undergraduate scholarships, including the Mangam Merit Scholarships. Awards are given based on the information provided in the application, including but not limited to overall GPA, GPA in English, a personal statement, and a letter of recommendation. One of the twelve scholarships is reserved for a minority student, one for a student who can show evidence of intent to teach in a primary or secondary school (Willis Scholarship), and one (Hagler Scholarship) for a rising senior (90 or more hours). The English Department scholarships will pay $4,000, in two installments.
