P-250 Scholarship

The P-250 Endowed Scholarship was created to recognize outstanding student contributions in the areas of leadership and service to the College and the Greater Albion Community.

History

A group of Albion College students came together during the 1971 academic year and collected money to establish an endowed fund to honor former Albion College President Bernard T. Lomas. Those students raised more than $250,000 to create the Bernard T. Lomas Project P-250 Endowed Scholarship. The number 250 comes directly from the $250,000 raised in endowment funds.

Purpose

The purpose of the Project 250 Scholarship is to encourage students to contribute to significant improvements of self, campus, and community. Award recipients will be determined:

  • Based on the applicant’s broad range of activities and without regard to financial need.
  • On the basis of the applicant’s leadership contributions as measured by the quality of the applicant’s involvement with activities and organizations.
  • On the contribution to the applicant’s personal goals in higher education.

Award & Eligibility

The 2022 Scholarship amount will be $2,000 – $5,000 per recipient.

To be eligible, students must be currently enrolled at Albion College and have obtained Junior class status, defined as completing 14 academic units. Graduating Seniors are not eligible, but Seniors who are returning for an additional semester(s) may apply.

It is anticipated that the Project 250 Endowed Scholarship for 2022-23 will be between $2000-$5000 per recipient. Because of this scholarship’s value, it may impact your financial aid eligibility.  Applicants understand that if they receive any other Albion College Financial Aid Assistance, and are selected as a P-250 Scholarship recipient, they may not be eligible for additional aid based on Department of Education financial aid awarding guidelines. We encourage applicants to meet with the Financial Aid Office prior to applying for the scholarship to review how your current financial aid could be affected if awarded this scholarship.

Recipients of the Scholarship will have their funds applied to their college account in two installments, half of the money will be applied in the fall semester and the other half applied in the spring semester. You must be a full time student, and enrolled both semesters in order to receive the full funding.
