Due to your academic success, you are eligible to apply for one of SBU's J.R. Maupin Founders Awards.  This is a scholarship that will cover your tuition and is valued at $21,000 for the 2015-2016 school year.

If you are a selected recipient of this scholarship, it will be renewable as long as you maintain a 3.25 GPA, live in on-campus housing and remain enrolled as a full-time student. Also, if you receive this scholarship, you will not be eligible to receive any other SBU scholarships.

In order to apply for this scholarship you must:

  • Submit the online Scholars Application by January 15, 2015.
  • Attend SBU's Scholars Day on February 7, 2015. (Your detailed itinerary will be sent in early February.)

You may already be a winner!

Everyone who participates in Scholars Day, and does not receive a J.R. Maupin Founders Award, will receive a Dutile Scholars Award ranging in value from $500 to $2,500!

You will automatically receive either the Ingman Distinguished Scholars Award or the Pike Scholars Award and the Dutile Scholars Award will be in addition to your scholarship. If you are selected for our J.R. Maupin Founders Award, you will not be eligible to receive either one of these scholarships.
