Post University will start accepting student applications Nov. 1 for a four-year, full-tuition scholarship named in honor of the late Malcolm Baldrige, the namesake of the university’s acclaimed business school who served as U.S. Secretary of Commerce from 1981 to 1987.
Winners of the Malcolm Baldrige Scholarship to enroll at the university’s main campus will be announced March 1, 2019. The deadline for submitting completed applications to the Office of Campus Admissions is Feb. 1. Students can request a scholarship application by sending an email to [email protected].
“Offering this coveted scholarship to deserving students is a fitting salute to the selfless commitment that Malcolm Baldrige made to public service,” said John L. Hopkins, president and CEO of Post University.
Eligibility for the Malcolm Baldrige Scholarship is limited to full-time students who have at least a 3.65 grade point average, and an SAT composite score of 1160 or an ACT score of 24. Other eligibility criteria apply.
Applications must include a personal resume, two letters of recommendation from a teacher, employer or another individual who address the applicant’s academic abilities, and a 500-word essay on the concept of “quality” with respect to organizations, individuals, or both.
Students can remain eligible for the Malcolm Baldrige Scholarship each year by maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better and sustaining status as a full-time residential student pursuing a degree at The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University.
