A Student has selected you to provide a recommendation statement in support of their application for the Project P250 Endowed Scholarship. The Scholarship was established when 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 P250 Endowed Scholarship. The number 250 comes directly from the $250,000 raised in endowment funds.
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:
The 2018 Scholarship amount will be $10,000 – $12,500 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.
The reference statement you provide will be used by the Project 250 Scholarship Selection Committee to gain further insight into the candidate's co-curricular leadership experiences and contributions to the College and Community. Most helpful is providing additional insight into the candidate's extra-curricular involvement and contributions to the College, the City and other communities, which is the basis for the P250 Scholarship award.
Recommendation deadline is Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 5:00 PM. If for whatever reason you are not able to submit a recommendation by this deadline you may still provide a recommendation statement after this date.
