EligibilityThe 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.
How to Apply
This award is made during the Spring semester each year and may be applied to the student’s account for the Spring semester or for the immediately following summer or fall semester. Applicants should submit a 2-page double-spaced personal statement addressing their qualifications for the award with respect to the specified eligibility criteria, unofficial transcripts highlighting GPA, evidence of current enrollment at a specific program at UGA, evidence of financial need, and/or first-generation college student (when applicable), and current resume by November 1st or the first business day thereafter.
