RDG: Toni S. and Kenneth Walters Student Literacy Scholarship

Description

Dr. Toni S. Walters was influential during her Oakland University teaching career. A number of her former students, as a tribute to her influence, celebrated her career and retirement by honoring Dr. Walters with gifts toward a scholarship bearing her and her husband’s name. With those gifts, Dr. Walters is establishing an endowment for an annual tuition award benefiting students studying literacy.

The award can be used for tuition, fees, books and other costs associated with enrollment in the School of Education and Human Services.

Eligibility Requirements:
  • Full or part-time undergraduate, masters or doctoral student with a declared major in the Reading and Language Arts program
Please note since there is not an undergraduate Reading and Language Art program currently, the committee has selected to use Reading courses on an applicant’s transcript as evidence of studying literacy when evaluating undergraduate student applications.
  • Maintain a 3.2 or higher GPA.
  • Discussing how they serve one’s community, emphasizing on commitment to ethnically and economically diverse communities in urban/metropolitan educational institutions.
  • Priority will be given for students who have demonstrated service in the field of literacy as an in-service or pre-service teacher, on Oakland University’s campus (which could include a student organization), or through community service.

Students may only receive one Walters Endowed award in each academic year, but are otherwise eligible to apply for Endowment awards in other academic years.
