The endowment that supports the Bothe-Marcotte Scholarship was started by Steve and Anne Marcotte in 2011. Named for their children, the Bothe-Marcotte Scholarship honors the combination of the Marcottes' personal and professional experiences in a manner that supports the future of undergraduate education at the University of Georgia.
The intent of the Bothe-Marcotte Scholarship is to recognize undergraduate students who have lived with speech or language disorders or craniofacial syndromes or anomalies. First preference is given to University of Georgia undergraduate students (enrolled or accepted to enroll) who have received speech-language pathology or speech therapy services at any time in their lives, or who have been diagnosed with any craniofacial syndrome, anomaly, or disorder. Applicants must have a current cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher. Preference may be given to qualified applicants with demonstrated financial need or who are first-generation college students. In the absence of qualified applicants who meet the above criteria, the selection committee may choose in any year to award this scholarship to an undergraduate student with demonstrated interest in craniofacial anomalies as a career path.
This award is made during spring semester each year and may be applied to the student's account for spring semester or for the immediately following summer or fall semester. Applicants should submit a 2-page typed statement addressing their qualifications for the award with respect to the specified eligibility criteria by March 1 or the first business day thereafter.
