Private Scholarships

Program Description

Purpose

Private Donor Awards (PDA) provide financial assistance to students who have demonstrated academic achievement and financial need. Private Donor Awards are scholarships funded by gifts given to the University and administered by the Coppin State University Development Foundation. The two priorities of the Private Donor Award Program are 1) to facilitate the wishes of the donor and 2) to assist with increasing enrollment, retention, and graduation rates.

When awarding private donor scholarships, the Foundation must comply with the donors' intent as outlined in memoranda of understanding or gift agreement when the gift is made. The Foundation also adheres to guidelines that ensure fairness, equity and responsiveness to individual students. The PDA Program works with the Financial Aid Office to properly package and effectively use the various types of student assistance (federal, state, institutional, private, etc.) and also to ensure that a student's financial aid package does not exceed the federal unmet needs financial aid guidelines.

Application Process

Students must submit an application during the application period. Application packets consist of an application form, a 300 word essay or personal statement expressing their educational and career goals as well as a current unofficial transcript. Application packets will be accepted between March 1st - May 31st of each year. Each applicant must complete a FASFA in order to be eligible to receive funds from the PDA Program unless that student is not eligible to receive Federal Financial Aid.

Unless otherwise instructed, all applications for Private Donor Awards are submitted to the Office of Institutional Advancement, 3rd Floor Administration Building.

Application Review

The Private Donor Award Coordinator will collect applications and review them to ensure that applications are complete and received within the deadline. The Scholarship Review Committee will review applicants and offer any additional information or support.

Award decisions are made based on the scholarship memorandum of understanding criteria and/or some general program criteria including a minimum grade point average of 2.2 (some MOU's may specify a different GPA minimum).

No graduate students may receive a scholarship unless the endowment specifically is set up to award a graduate student.

Award Notification

The PDA Scholarship Coordinator will forward an award letter to each student via CSU student email addresses informing the student of the award. Students receiving scholarship awards are required to write an acknowledgement letter expressing appreciation to the individual or organization that provided financial support. Students are encouraged to visit the CSU writing lab or research how to write a "Scholarship Thank You Letter", if needed.

Denied Applications

A letter informing applicants who were not selected to receive an award will also be emailed to those students.

Award Posting

Once the award recipients have been selected, the names will be forwarded to the Financial Aid Office. Financial Aid will develop the student's award packet and determine the unmet need. Once the unmet need is determined, the Foundation will post the final approved award amount to the student's account. If a student is due to receive a refund of more than $2,000, the Private Donor Scholarship will be revoked. The final award will not be posted to the student account until the acknowledgement letter has been received in the Office of Institutional Advancement.

Awards are for Fall and Spring semesters only.

Award amounts usually do not exceed $2,000 per student, unless otherwise stipulated in the MOU or gift agreement. Award amounts also depend on availability of funding.

Award Renewal

Students who maintain their academic progress and continue to adhere to the award guidelines are eligible for renewed scholarships each semester until degree completion if funds are available. These students must submit the Fall unofficial transcript to avoid cancellation of the Spring award. An award in one semester does not entitle students to subsequent awards. Students must maintain their academic progress and other requirements of the respective MOU.

Admissions Awards

The Office of Admissions may identify incoming freshmen and/or transfer students who will receive funding from the Private Donor Scholarship Program. The Admissions Office will make decisions based on their current recruitment priorities. Once those students accept admission to Coppin State University, the Office of Admissions will forward a completed Award Recommendation form for each recipient to the Foundation for review.

Awards will be made at the beginning of the semester. Award amounts should not exceed $2,000 per semester.

Freshman students will have to re-apply through the normal process after having received the initial award.

Eligibility

Only those students who are currently enrolled at the University, have submitted all required scholarship application forms and documents, and meet the minimum scholastic and other requirements specified in the Private Donor Award Program policy will be considered eligible.

Graduate Student Applicants

Graduate students are eligible to apply for funds from the Private Donor Award Program. The maximum amount that a graduate student may receive per semester is $1,000, if funds are available.

Part Time Students

Students who are taking at least 6-11 credits per semester are eligible to receive a maximum award amount of $1,000 per semester, if funds are available.

State Employees and Family Members

State employees and their family members who are eligible to receive tuition remission through the State of Maryland are not eligible to receive an award from the Private Donor Scholarship Program.

Probation, Extensions & Expirations

Award Probation

The Scholarship Review Committee has the option of placing a student on probation if the student's academic performance falls below the minimum standard as per the award criteria. Probation will last for one semester and that student must improve academic performance by the end of that semester. If the student's grades do not improve, the award will be cancelled.

Award Extensions & Expiration

Students who receive extensions to submit documentation or to complete applications will have 2 days to do so. This grace period shall be granted at the discretion of the PDA Scholarship Committee. Students who believe that they should have been awarded during a particular semester but did not receive their award may request a review of his or her application packet up to 30 days after the awards were posted for that semester.

Book Awards

Students may apply for an award to purchase books. In order to do this, the student must do the following:

  • Obtain a book invoice from the bookstore listing all the books needed and their prices.
  • Submit the invoice to the Institutional Advancement Office along with a PDA application

Once the application is approved, the student will be notified by email. The letter should be taken to the bookstore to retrieve their books. Book Awards are only given for books and supplies.

Emergency Assistance Request

All students who are in need of emergency assistance, must apply through the Office of Student Affairs. The student then proceeds to Institutional Advancement (IA) with the approved paperwork. Awards will be made on a case by case basis. The student's matriculation rate and grade point average and other documentation may be taken into consideration when the committee convenes to make the decision.

Acknowledgement

All students receiving Private Donor Awards are required to draft a letter of appreciation to the Donor of the Award c/o the Coppin State University, Office of Institutional Advancement. A copy should also be sent to the Office of Financial Aid. This letter must be grammatically correct and follow a standard letter format. The award may or may not post to the student account until the acknowledgement letter is received. If the letter is never received by the Office of Institutional Advancement, the scholarship may be revoked.
