UOG East Asian Studies Scholarship Fund
The purpose of the East Asian Studies Scholarship Fund is to promote East Asian Studies at UOG, and to give financial support to East Asian Studies students who show potential and promise of pursuing a career in East Asian Studies (EAS).
The East Asian Studies Scholarship Fund will be managed by the UOG Endowment Foundation. The EAS Scholarship Awards Committee will be composed of at least two (2) faculty members from East Asian Studies and the Director of East Asian Studies. The Awards Committee will meet at least once in a school year, usually in the Fall semester, before October 15th.
Ideally IF funds permit, the EAS Scholarship Awards Committee would like to award, at least, two (2) scholarships each year, but it may award more, if funds permit, according to the following criteria: Only East Asian Studies Majors are eligible to receive the EAS Scholarship. In the even that there are no majors, then a student minoring in EAS will be consider eligible.
If funds permit, then a ONE-THOUSAND DOLLAR ($1000.00) SCHOLARSHIP will be given to the EAS major who has the highest total Grade Point Average (GPA) with at least a total GPA of 3.5, and who shows potential and promise of pursuing a career in East Asian studies.
If funds permit, then a FIVE HUNDRED DOLLAR ($500.00) SCHOLARSHIP will be given to the EAS major who has the second highest total GPA with at least a 3.0, and who shows potential and promise of pursuing a career in East Asian studies.
In the event that there are two or more student applicants for the scholarship who are equal in all aspects, then the Awards Committee may decide to either share the scholarship award evenly between the students, or flip a coin to determine the recipient.
In the event that the EAS majors (or minors) do not meet the minimum GPA for the first and second place awards, then EAS students with a GPA of at least a 2.2 will be considered eligible for a scholarship award of TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS ($200.00).
In the event that it takes more than TEN (10) months to raise HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500.00), then when the "East Asian Studies Scholarship" fund has at least FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500.00) in it, then the East Asian Studies faculty will organize a Scholarship Awards Committee, and select scholarship awardees, according to these guidelines.
In the event that there are no EAS majors or minors for at least five (5) years, the EAS awards committee should use the funds to purchase books or other learning aids for the UOG Library.
Or in the event that the EAS program, both the major and minor, are expunged from the UOG catalog, then the Chair of Humanistic Studies (or its equivalent, if the university units are restructured) should organize a faculty committee to use the remaining funds to purchase books or other learning aids for the UOG library.
