SU students to be awarded for academic achievements by unions

Shippensburg University’s faculty and coaches unions recently awarded more than $5,800 to numerous students for their academic accomplishments.

Students were chosen from 29 academic departments and programs, and fifty financial awards were distributed to students overall.

Each year, a certain amount of money is set aside by the faculty and coaches unions in order to award students for their successes at the end of the spring semester.

To become eligible for these awards, students were required to have at least a 3.3 GPA, and submit a 250-word essay detailing how faculty have shaped their time at SU.

After all applications were received, a committee evaluated each candidate’s service to SU and the Shippensburg community.

Faculty members from each department were in charge of selecting the recipients of their department’s scholarship, as well as the eligibility criteria.

Students will be recognized for their awards at the annual Student Awards Program Saturday at 11 a.m. in the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center.
