Community Service Scholarship Application Deadline Coming Up for Early Fall Quarter 2012
It is time again for eligible students to apply for the community service scholarship given to our students each quarter. Students who have won the scholarship in the past have done so by completing community service ranging from mission trips abroad to small local work here in the Coulee Region. Big or small each one of us can contribute to our community here locally or at the world wide level. If you are currently participating in community service, check out our Community Service Scholarship worth $2000 towards your tuition over the course of a year.
Eligibility guidelines are outline below:
- Must be enrolled in a diploma, associate, or bachelor’s degree program
- Must be a continuing student by having completed at least 1 term at Globe University
- Not in arrears with financial aid or have an outstanding balance with Globe University
- Maintain a 3.5 GPA or Higher

- Be enrolled in a minimum of 11 credits per term

More details are listed on page 20-21 of the most recent edition of the course catalog.
Applications are being collected until 12:00 PM on August 30, 2012 to be eligible for the scholarship beginning in Fall 2012 Quarter. Contact Ree Nae Roberge-Greene, Student Services Coordinator with questions.
A student may be asking him or herself, “What kinds of community service are available in our community right now?” And that is a good question. Coming up in the near future are great opportunities for healthcare related fields including Medical Assisting, Health Care Management, Massage Therapy and Medical Administrative Assisting. Check out Steppin’ Out in Pink, the Walk to End Alzheimers, and the YMCA Buddy Program.
For Veterinary Technicians, Bark in the Park and Bark for Life are in the near future. Criminal Justice student may be interested in helping with the Children’s Museums’s “Back to School” which will be focusing on safety activities.
