When awarding the Alec Beck Endowed Scholarship, in addition to considering an applicant’s relationship to a parent/step-parent that is/was incarcerated or currently on parole, the scholarship committee considers an applicant’s financial need, socioeconomic status, academic and extra-curricular achievements, and hardships. As with most scholarships awarded through the University, funds are limited and the selection process is highly competitive.
