Jean Evans Memorial History Scholarship
This scholarship was established by Michael Kirk in memory of his aunt, Jean Evans (d. 2011). Jean worked as an Administrative Assistant in the History Department for more than 25 years. The college, in particular the faculty, staff and students of the History Department were very important parts of Jean’s life. The scholarship was established to reward an outstanding History major for good performance and campus involvement. To qualify for this award, a student must:
a. Be a declared History major.
b. Have a minimum SUNY Oswego GPA of 3.25.
c. Apply in their freshman, sophomore or junior year (having earned 0–86 credits, including transfer credits, at time of application deadline), for an award to be received in the subsequent academic year.
d. Have demonstrated involvement on campus by submitting an essay on involvements on campus.
e. Demonstrate financial need.
f. It is preferred that the recipient be a student from Oswego County. If the most qualified applicant is not from Oswego County, the award will go to the student who best meets the other criteria.
