Marilyn Shiely Coste Memorial Scholarship

The Marilyn Shiely Coste Memorial Scholarship seeks to support students who have been innovative and strategic in the way they have combined their major with extracurricular opportunities, such as sustained involvement in community literacy outreach programs, professional internships, sustained work as a tutor, or achievement as a published writer. Eligible students must be English majors at the sophomore or junior level and have a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0. This scholarship is renewable up to a maximum of two years after the initial award as long as the student remains enrolled full time, maintains a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0, and continues to be involved in sustained and meaningful extracurricular activities.

Supplemental Questions
  1. Please compose a brief, one- page (single-spaced) narrative that addresses, in detail, how you have deployed the skills and values developed through your English coursework beyond the classroom. You might describe your experience in literacy outreach activities, a relevant internship, tutoring, or other professional and service activities that are related in some way to your major.
