Bertha Kalm Scholarship
The Office of Graduate Studies & Research is pleased to offer the Bertha Kalm Scholarship for graduate students at SJSU in the amount of $500.00. Awards are restricted to first year students in a master's degree program at SJSU. Only members of the faculty who mentor graduate students can forward the names and supporting information of an applicant. Applicants will be evaluated by the Graduate Studies & Research Committee on the quality of scholarship that established eligibility for admission to the graduate program, a personal statement by the applicant regarding goals to be achieved by the master's degree, and the mentor's assessment of the applicant's potential success. Additional consideration will be given to applicants with financial needs. There will be a maximum of one award per department or school.
How To Apply
Interested students should contact their student mentor about recommending them for the scholarship. The student mentor should supply copies of 1) the downloaded application, filled out and signed by the student, 2) the student's undergraduate transcript (unofficial okay), 3) the student's personal statement regarding goals to be achieved by the master's degree (entered on the application above), 4) the mentor's statement about the student's potential for success in a cover letter announcing the submission of the application, and 5) the completed (by the student) Permission to Publish form. The mentor should then send the package to the Office of Graduate Studies & Research, ADM 223B, no later than Monday, May 6, 2013. All paperwork must be submitted single-sided, no staples and clipped together. The award will be announced in mid-May, 2013.
Interested students, therefore, should contact their mentor about recommending them for the scholarship well before the May 6 deadline.
