Olsen Family Scholarship in Human Development and Family Studies

Recipients shall be enrolled in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies. Recipients shall be underrepresented multicultural students. Recipients shall have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. First preference shall be given to students majoring in early childhood education. Second preference shall be given to students who demonstrate financial need. Recipients shall be of undergraduate class standing. Scholarship may be renewed so long as recipients continue to meet stated criteria.

The Donors would like fewer, larger scholarships awarded, rather than several smaller scholarships, and ask that initially there be no more than two scholarships awarded annually to increase the impact for the recipients.
