1. The scholarship is based upon a full year of academic study. The amount of the scholarship shall be $2,500 for full-time study (see 2 below) and $1,250 for part-time study, payable on a term basis. Payments will be issued twice during the academic year—September and February. They will be made co-payable to the student and the school. The scholarship award will be reduced for students enrolled for less than a full year and will be based upon the terms completed. There is no provision for support for Summer session courses. 2. Applicants must be enrolled for at least 12 semester credits to receive a full scholarship; applicants enrolled in six to 11.5 credits per semester shall be eligible to receive a partial scholarship; applicants enrolled for fewer than six credits are not eligible for an award. 3. Recipients must submit a renewal form to their Campus Ambassador or, for schools without Ambassadors, their department chair. This form will be e-mailed to Ambassadors in January. The scholarship renewal is for the second semester payment only. A second year of funding is not guaranteed, though students may reapply through the regular competitive process. 4. Requests for consideration of special circumstances, such as deferral of a scholarship during a period of leave of absence, may be made to the FAE Scholarship Committee.
