K. Ann Dempsey Honors Scholarship
The K. Ann Dempsey Honors Scholarship Fund was established in May 1997 at the St. Louis Community Foundation by Dr. K. Ann Dempsey, who taught at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley (SLCC-FV) for many years and served as Coordinator of the Honors Program. The K. Ann Dempsey Honors Scholarship opportunity is for SLCC-FV Honors eligible students.
Two scholarships will be awarded: one at $750 and one at $500. The scholarship may be used in any way that helps a student attend St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley. The scholarships are one time awards.
Eligibility: To be eligible, a student must have completed one Honors course or contract with Honors credit and have earned a 3.5 or above cumulative grade point average at SLCC-FV.
Application Requirements: In order to apply, applicants will need to submit a one-page essay describing applicant’s educational goals and financial need and provide the email addresses of two SLCC-FV faculty members who will submit a recommendation on your behalf. Additionally, the Honors Program Coordinator at SLCC-FV will write a candid assessment of each candidate.
Selection: Recommendations for award recipients are based on Honors Committee evaluation of the applicant’s academic performance and the quality of essays and the content of the letters of recommendation. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Please answer all questions that apply to you, even if they are not marked “required.”
Application status will be changed from submitted to either offered or denied in June. Applicants can view their status by logging in to their Scholarship Central account.
Distribution: Scholarship award checks will be sent to St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley Office of Financial Aid in early August for the benefit of the K. Ann Dempsey Honors Scholarship award recipients.
