Burman University is able to relieve some financial stress from some students thanks to a Servus Credit Union partnership.

$50,000 was given to the Burman University scholarship committee to decide the amounts and number of scholarships that will be awarded each year.

Students will be qualified through hard work in and out of school, says J-R Ferrer who is VP of marketing and enrollment.

“We look at the whole student growth not just in academics, but in spiritual ways and in community  and social ways so we want to make sure we provide opportunities for them and reward all these things they are doing just outside of the classroom,” he explains.  

Students who have demonstrated strong academic achievement, community service, campus involvement, and program participation will all be able to apply.

“They can see the criteria, so they now if they are strong in these areas they can put in an application for them, and they are awarded according to the work that they put in,” Ferrer explains.

Ferrer says they will then give those students the opportunity to apply, and then will hand them out at an award show next spring.
