Hawkeye Community College is committed to creating a culture where everyone is respected, appreciated, and valued. As a part of this commitment, the Inclusion Scholarship provides students with the opportunity to pursue their career goals while promoting a campus climate of inclusion.
Inclusion Scholarship recipients will receive a $1,000 scholarship if enrolled full-time (12+credits hours). The scholarship will be prorated if enrolled part-time (6-9 credit hours).
Recipients will promote and advance inclusion efforts at Hawkeye through student participation on the Inclusion Center’s Student Advisory Council.
The scholarship may be renewed annually for recipients who maintain good academic standing and participate in the Inclusion Center’s Student Advisory Council. Students who are eligible for the renewal do not need to reapply.
New, incoming first-year students are eligible to apply. Applicants will be evaluated on their demonstrated leadership or involvement in advocating for and championing inclusion efforts in their community, high school, church, or other activities and commitment to continuing these efforts at Hawkeye Community College.
Students who are anticipated to enhance and contribute to the diversity of Hawkeye’s campus community are highly encouraged to apply.
Please submit a statement which includes a personal introduction about yourself and respond to the following questions:
How have you demonstrated leadership or involvement in advocating for and championing inclusion efforts in your community (i.e. school, church, or other activities)?
How might you continue to promote and advance inclusion at Hawkeye as a college student?
Your response could be in the form of a traditional essay (minimum of 250 words) or a creative form such as video recording of yourself, storyboard, visual art, or musical art (videos should be a .mp4 or .wav file and no longer than three minutes).
The priority deadline to apply is June 30, 2021. Applications received after the priority deadline may be considered, if funding is available.
Recipients will be notified by their Hawkeye email starting on July 30, 2021.
