Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Book Stipend
The Center for Leadership & Social Change welcomes you to participate in the 2015-2016 Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Book Stipend Scholarship. We bring you this great opportunity through collaboration between the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Black Alumni Association.
The purpose of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Book Stipend Award is to assist Florida State University students in completing their education. MLK Book Stipend Awards are available on a competitive basis to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Due to the sources of funding for this award, there are two sets of eligibility criteria. Recipients of the FSU Black Alumni Association awards must identify as African American/Black. Awards from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs are open to students of ALL racial and ethnic backgrounds.
All applicants must be Florida State University students who meet the following criteria:
Applicants must be United States citizens who have completed at least fifteen (15) credit hours of college work (undergraduate applicants only) at Florida State University prior to submission of their application. First-year graduate students must be enrolled in a minimum of nine (9) graduate credit hours. In addition, undergraduate applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.5, and graduate applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and plan to be enrolled full time at Florida State University for the 2016-2017 academic year. A full-time undergraduate student must carry a minimum of twelve (12) credit hours. A full-time graduate student must carry a minimum of nine (9) credit hours.
Three awards for the amount of $300 will be issued from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, and three awards will be issued from the FSU Black Alumni Association, for a total of six awards. Awards will be issued as a check or direct deposit during Fall 2016.
Due to the volume of applicants, any student(s) who has been awarded the Book Stipend in the past may not apply again.
This application is only accepted through electronic submission. If you encounter any problems with your online submission, please contact Junior Peña, Graduate Assistant with the Center for Leadership & Social Change at JPena2@fsu.edu .
