Application deadline for $4,000 Stilwell Scholarship is Friday

John Carroll University is pleased to award two Charles J Stilwell scholarships, each $4,000, to undergraduate students who have completed an academic internship during the 2011-2012 academic year (summer 2011, fall 2011, or spring 2012) and have been recognized by their employers as having provided outstanding performance.

Charles J. Stilwell became a member of the Fenn College board of trustees in 1927. Fenn College was since acquired by Cleveland State University. In 1946, he was elected chair of the board, an office that he held until 1960, when he was elected a life trustee. The Charles J. Stilwell Scholarship was established in the Combined Fund of the Cleveland Foundation upon his death in 1972. In May, 1975, this fund was increased substantially by a gift from the trust of Edna D. Stilwell.

Applications for the 2011-2012 scholarships must be submitted no later than Friday, April 20, 2012, to Joan Coyne in the John Carroll University Center for Career Services. Late and/or incomplete applications will not be considered. The Scholarship Selection Committee at the Center for Career Services will review all applications and notify scholarship recipients of their selection by April 30, 2012.
