Scholarship Recipients

Congratulations to the 2018 Power of Women Scholarship Recipients!

Eleven Southeast Missouri State University Students will be honored with scholarships during the 6th annual Power of Women luncheon at the Show Me Center.

The Power of Women Scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate a passion for a life of service, are attending Southeast full time and have completed at least 30 credit hours with a minimum 2.75 grade point average. Each recipient submitted an application demonstrating significant academic achievement, involvement at the University and commitment to volunteerism and community service. The Power of Women Scholarship Committee selected the recipients based on these factors as well as their future aspirations for success in their career and personal life. Each student received a $500 award.
