Elizabeth Claire Meuret Memorial Scholarship

The Elizabeth Claire Meuret Memorial Scholarship is open to students who are majoring in a medical or healthcare field and are enrolled full-time as an undergraduate student in an accredited nonprofit four-year college or university. Each recipient will demonstrate unmet financial need at the college or university they attend in the United States.

To be eligible, the applicant must:
• be graduating from or a recent graduate of high school
• major in a medical/healthcare field
• plan to enroll full time in a nonprofit, accredited four-year college or university
• be a permanent resident of St. Louis County, Missouri
• demonstrate unmet financial need as determined by standard methods of need analysis in practice at the time of selection. In general, unmet financial need will be defined as the difference between the cost of attendance and the sum of the family’s contribution (EFC) and the student’s grant aid from other sources.

Selection
Selection may be based on the student’s academic record, the quality of the essay and letter(s) of recommendation, and/or consideration of financial need and unusual circumstances. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Please answer all questions that apply to you, even if they are not marked “required.”

Recipients will be eligible to apply for renewal for up to three additional undergraduate years, if a renewal application is submitted in a timely manner and academic and financial eligibility criteria continue to be met. Making satisfactory progress toward a degree, generally defined as a 2.5 grade point average on a 4 point scale (or the equivalent) in 12 or more semester hours (or the equivalent), will be considered academically eligible for renewal but each applicant’s facts and circumstances will be considered. The goal is to financially assist the recipient to achieve a college degree.

Notification

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.
