Tony and Keith recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Norwich to create a named endowed class scholarship. The scholarship becomes a permanent part of Norwich's endowment generating scholarship aid in perpetuity once its value reaches $25,000. Our goal is to reach the $25,000 level by the end of Norwich's fiscal year, May 31, 2011, we are currently at $17,500 so please consider making a gift or pledge to help us reach our goal.
Our scholarship will be awarded annually to an upperclassman in the Corps of Cadets. Preference of this scholarship is given to students who demonstrate a "Strive for Excellence" attitude marked by involvement or leadership in extracurricular activities or organizations either on or off campus that have a positive impact on the Norwich community. This scholarship may be renewed through the student's senior year if a minimum of a 2.5 grade point average is maintained. The intent of this scholarship is to not only help a future cadet earn a Norwich degree, but to also inspire a higher giving participation rate among our class. Please consider designating all or part of your gift or pledge to the scholarship. Our support to Norwich is imperative on helping to continue her success.
