Description & Purpose: The McLean Scholarship for Nursing or Physician Assistant Majors is provided through the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania (AICUP). The McLean Contributionship established a generous endowment in 1998 to help full-time undergraduate students who are enrolled in a Nursing or Physician’s Assistant program. Amount of Award: This year the value of each scholarship will be $4,425. There will be seven (7) scholarships awarded this year. Qualifications for the McLean Scholarship: Each applicant must be a full time undergraduate student enrolled in a Nursing or Physician Assistant program at one of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania’s member institutions, and have at least a 3.0 grade point average. Ideal candidates are campus leaders and community volunteers. Selection Process: Each institution is asked to select one or two applications to submit to AICUP for the competition. Please do not advise students to send their applications directly to AICUP as they will not be accepted. Along with the completed application and required essay, students are encouraged to submit a copy of their transcript, a letter of recommendation, and any other materials that they feel will be helpful to the committee in making their decision. All applications must be signed by the student. Only complete applications will go to the selection committee. The members of the committee will read each application and select the recipients. Applications must be submitted to AICUP via email by sending them to Casey Trinkaus, AICUP Communications Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for AICUP to receive nominated applications is Friday June 17, 2022. Please do not mail applications to the AICUP office. If you have questions, please email Casey Trinkaus the email address above. Notification: We will notify each recipient by mail in July. Those applicants who were not selected will also receive notification by the end of July. We will send the check to the financial aid office at each recipient’s school in mid-August along with any other funds designated to your institution. The check will include directions to apply the money to the recipient’s account. Recipients should notify the school’s financial aid office immediately if the money is not applied to their account. Recipient Responsibility: We expect each recipient to acknowledge receipt of the scholarship to the McLean Contributionship. The contact’s name and address will be included in the notification letter for sending a thank you letter for the award. Recipients should also send a copy of this letter to the Association. Throughout the year we plan various stewardship activities with our donors. Occasionally we try to unite the recipients of scholarships with the donors who made them possible. We ask that recipients make every effort possible to attend these gatherings. By attending these events, donors are reassured that their money was invested wisely in independent higher education. It also makes a strong case for future support.
