Carbondale, Illinois – The SIU Women’s Club is now accepting applications for two scholarships: the Dorothy Morris Traditional Student Scholarship and the Joyce Guyon Unconventional Scholarship.

Each of the annual scholarships is worth $2,000. The scholarship application deadline is January 31. The scholarships are open to all female undergraduate students who are enrolled in a degree program at SIU Carbondale, have a minimum of 24 credits earned at the university, and have a GPA of at least 3.0. Preference is given to applicants who will attain a higher ranking at the end of the Spring 2022 semester.

Apply now

Applicants must first complete the SIU General Scholarship Application, available online at scholarships.siu.edu/general-application.php. Click on “SIU Scholarship Opportunity Manager” and enter “SIU Women’s Club” in the search box to access the two scholarship applications and additional information.

Recipients are selected based on academic achievement, goals and career aspirations, leadership experience, references, and financial need. The Dorothy Morris Traditional Student Scholarship goes to a student who is college educated within a few years of graduating from high school while the Joyce Guyon Nontraditional Student Scholarship is awarded to a woman whose college education is somehow interrupted.
