External Scholarships

EXTERNAL SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION POLICY

Because we here at Paul Quinn College believe that leaders must demonstrate financial responsibility and because we produce servant leaders, the administration instituted the External Scholarship Application Policy in fall 2012. The policy stipulates:

All Paul Quinn College non student athletes must apply for a minimum of two (2) external scholarships per semester.

All student athletes must apply for a minimum of four (4) external scholarships per semester.

Students who are unable to prove that they satisfied this requirement by the end of each semester will not receive institutional aid/scholarship funds. In addition, student athletes who fail to meet this requirement by the end of each semester will be ineligible to compete.

Examples of proof of scholarship application include the following:

A letter from the organization or company sponsoring the scholarship

An emailed confirmation page from the organization or company sponsoring the scholarship

A screenshot of the webpage indicating you have successfully submitted the application

All proof must have the name of the scholarship you applied for and the date you applied for it and are due by 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 23, 2014. Hardcopies can be brought to Victoria Wilson in the President’s Office (Adams 300) and softcopies can be emailed to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Seniors graduating in May 2014 do not have to apply for scholarships during the Spring 2014 semester.
