Marjorie E. Chapman Memorial "Everybody Matters" Essay Scholarship
The Marjorie E. Chapman Memorial “Everybody Matters” Essay Scholarship is open to the dependent children of employees of Barry-Wehmiller companies. Up to ten $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to eligible students to be mailed to the two or four year nonprofit college, university or trade school the student attends in the United States or Canada.
- be a dependent of a current employee of Barry-Wehmiller Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates.
- submit fully completed application, including the contact information for a letter of reference, and all required supporting documentation by April 15 deadline
- enroll full time as an undergraduate at a nonprofit college, university or trade school in the United States or Canada.
High school seniors and current college students are encouraged to apply. Applicants may apply for both the Marjorie E. Chapman Memorial Need-Based Scholarship and the Marjorie E. Chapman Memorial “Everybody Matters” Essay Scholarship but may not receive both.
Applications will be evaluated on the basis of
- past academic performance and potential for continued success as demonstrated on the applicants transcript,
- the strength of the essay, and
- supportive recommendation from a teacher, counselor or supervisor.
Selection of the recipients and the scholarship amount will be determined by the St. Louis Community Foundation from information provided by the applicant, the school, and the recommender. The Marjorie E. Chapman Memorial Scholarship Advisory Committee will make recommendations to the Community Foundation about the strength of the essays.
Each applicant will be notified online in Scholarship Central of his or her status in the competition by early June. Recipients will receive a letter about their award. The scholarship check with a cover letter that includes the parameters of the program will be mailed in early August to the post-secondary institution the recipient attends.
The Marjorie E. Chapman Memorial “Everybody Matters” Essay Scholarship is a one-year award. Recipients may apply annually by completing a new application, including a new essay, in subsequent undergraduate years. Each year’s application will be evaluated independent of previous status.
The Marjorie E. Chapman Memorial Scholarship Program is administered by the St. Louis Community Foundation. Eligibility, award recipients, and award amount will be determined by the St. Louis Community Foundation.
