GSRC Scholarship Applications

Below is information regarding the scholarship application process.

Teachers, please encourage your students to apply and assist them as necessary in completing their applications.

Following these simple instructions can produce great results!

1. APPLICATIONS WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED ELECTRONICALLY. Documents can be converted to a PDF file with electronic signatures or scanned in and emailed to Alicia.mccracken@gmail.com.

2. Instructors have been provided a waiver for the students to sign so that any potential legal concerns based upon the unofficial (not from the Admissions Office) reporting of grades may be made by instructors. It is recommended that pages requiring signatures be scanned in to allow electronic delivery of the documents.

3. In past years, there have been several incomplete applicaiton packets, disqualifying applicants. To prevent this from happening it is recommended that ALL documents be submitted at the same time if possible.

4. Students making application for the financial scholarship are now being encouraged to obtain an official indication from Financial Aid as to the necessity of a scholarship based upon financial hardship. If students are unable to obtain such information from Financial Aid, they must submit a letter of justification, substantiated by their instructor, as to financial need.

5. Instructors will be required to provide a more in-depth assessment of the applicants.

6. The Scholarship will be paid directly to the student by the GSRC Executive Office. It is the responsibility of the student and referring faculty member to ensure that receipt of the scholarship does not create a conflict with other agencies or schools.

7. The deadline for submission and announcements:

  • Deadline for Submission: January 11, 2017
  • Presentation: February 3, 2017 at the GSRC Winter/Student Meeting in Macon, GA

8. Please have the students return the completed applications by email to alicia.mccracken@gmail.com. If you have any questions about the scholarship, you can reach Alicia at 678-634-2131.
