Society of Yeager Scholars
Selected for their leadership potential as well as for their academic performance, students who receive the Yeager Scholarship benefit from Marshall’s premier scholarship. See the link to the Yeager Scholars web-site for detailed information.
John Marshall Scholarship
Marshall automatically awards four-year John Marshall scholarships to students with home addresses in West Virginia whose records show the requisite GPA and test scores. This award requires that students complete 26 hours of course work each year, and complete three honors seminars if not a member of the Honors College.
Hedrick Scholarship
Charles B. and Mary Jo Hedrick, long-time donors to Marshall University, endowed a fund in 1996 to offer a generous supplemental award to academically gifted students from Cabell, Logan, Putnam, or Wayne counties in West Virginia. This renewable scholarship is awarded to a student in the Honors College who has completed one year of study at Marshall.
Other Scholarships
The Honors College also administers one-time scholarship grants for foreign and domestic study as well as the Paul J. Mayer Leadership West Virginia scholarship. In each case, both a student’s leadership potential and GPA help determine the awardee. Please contact the Dean for additional information.
