Jan Z. Wiranowski Endowed Renaissance Scholarships

Jan Z. Wiranowski Endowed Renaissance Scholarships

There are three J. Z. Wiranowski Scholarships. They are grouped in the following two categories:

Math and/or math-based science
non-traditional academic background and/or out-of-the-ordinary life experiences

NOTE:

The distribution of the awards among the applicants will depend on the qualifications of the applicants. Hence, it is conceivable that in any given year all three recipients could be receiving the same type of scholarship.

An applicant may be awarded up to two scholarships: one from the math and/or math-based science category and one from the non-math category. If more than one scholarship is applied for, a separate application must be submitted for each scholarship.

Although individual scholarship requirements vary, any student currently enrolled in at least 10 credit hours at Monroe Community College may be eligible for the scholarships if he/she:

MATH AND/OR MATH-BASED SCIENCE SCHOLARSHIP

Must have successfully completed at least 12 credit hours at Monroe Community College and be in the process of completing enough credits to have a total of at least 24 credit hours by the end of Spring 2013.

Must have successfully completed at least 4 credit hours of mathematics at a level of Calculus I or higher, and must be currently enrolled either in a mathematics course or a mathematics related course at Monroe Community College.

Must have a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.5 or higher.
Must be planning on an academic major in mathematics, mathematics education, or a mathematics related field.

NON-TRADITIONAL ACADEMIC BACKGROUND

AND/OR OUT-OF-THE-ORDINARY LIFE EXPERIENCES

Must have successfully completed at least 12 credit hours at Monroe Community College and be in the process of completing enough credits to have a total of at least 24 credit hours by the end of Spring 2013.

Must have a plan and a set of criteria for the continued education that are linked to his/her hitherto accomplishments and/or personal history. This does not exclude well justified changes of direction in life. In fact, if such a change is real, practical and useful, it is very welcome; in accordance with the basic fact of life that change is a must, so we must change.  

Must have successfully completed (or is in the process of completing by the end of the current semester) courses that are relevant to his/her professional objectives, in order to qualify for the award. It is left to the applicant, to convincingly elaborate on this compliance in a separately typed and signed statement.
