The Quincy University Franciscan Service Scholarship rewards students who have embraced the Franciscan value of service to others in their early life. Students admitted to the Fall 2015 term are encouraged to apply by submitting a 300-500 word essay outlining their commitment to serving others and the impact experienced by both student and those served. In addition, a letter of recommendation from a person who can attest to the student’s service work is required. The recommendation should specifically note the individual’s relationship (supervisor, advisor, etc.) to the student’s service work and address the student’s character and service dedication. To complete the application process, the student will participate in an interview with Quincy University staff members during a scheduled campus visit.
Application essay and service reference may be submitted anytime before January 15, 2016. Campus Visit interviews may be scheduled at any time after submission of the essay and reference. Interviews must be scheduled before January 29, 2016 and completed by February 12, 2016 for the 2016-17 academic year.
