ASI Scholarship Program changes direction

The new essay prompt focuses on students overcoming their obstacles. 

The year-old Associated Students Inc. scholarship program is seeing changes this year, including a shift in deadline and target audience.

According to the scholarship application, the ASI Scholarship Program seeks to provide $25,000 of financial support in awards of $1,000 to 25 qualifying students.

In the past, the application focused on the theme of student engagement on campus or in the community, according to ASI Treasurer Agatha Gucyski.

It required applicants to submit an essay describing their responsibilities while in college, including involvement in student organizations, internships, research, employment or community outreach.

This year, however, the application also targets students with financial need, according to Gucyski.
