´┐╝There are two Textbook Scholarships available for up to $500 each.

The awarded students will be reimbursed up to $500 for textbooks used for Mortuary Science courses; general education course textbooks are not eligible for the scholarship.

Reimbursement will be made immediately upon proof of purchase of the textbooks in the form of a receipt from the college bookstore, or program administrator. If not already printed on the receipt, the name of the textbook and the course (including course title and number) for which it was purchased should be included. The student may use the scholarship over multiple semesters until the full $500 is awarded.

The top 5 essays will also be published online by End of Life Insights.  The application deadline for the Spring 2010 Textbook Scholarship Award is February 28, 2010.
