Due to the recent winter storm and continuing power outages in many locations, Cameron University has extended the application deadline for its Presidential Leaders and University Scholars (PLUS) scholarship to Wednesday, February 10, 2010.
All scholarship application materials should be postmarked on or before Feb. 10th. Students hand-delivering application materials should take them to the Admissions Office on the second floor of North Shepler on Cameron's main campus in Lawton, or to CU-Duncan, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Feb. 10th.
The PLUS Scholarship is Cameron University's most prestigious scholarship. The program provides recipients with a four-year full tuition waiver scholarship, a single-room waiver and a stipend during the students' freshman and senior years. In addition, students participate in a four-year program designed to develop students' potential as leaders, fostering an appreciation of the importance of community service and preparing students professionally to enter the career of their choice.
To qualify to apply for the scholarship, students should be residents of Oklahoma, have achieved at least a 24 ACT composite score or SAT equivalent and have at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average in high school courses. To apply, students should provide the following materials: application for admission; $15 application fee; scholarship application; current high school transcript; ACT/SAT scores; résumé detailing extracurricular activities, leadership positions held and awards/honors received throughout high school; essay detailing their most meaningful leadership experience and how that experience will help them as a student at Cameron; and three letters of reference (one from a high school counselor or principal, one from a teacher and one from someone who can detail your leadership potential or experience).
Applications are reviewed by a committee who selects students to interview for the scholarship. Approximately 25 PLUS Scholars are chosen each year.
