The scholarship is guaranteed for one more academic year as a probationary award. The student’s progress is reviewed at the completion of the third year. The grade point average must be raised to 3.0 while completing 24 credits in order to receive the scholarship for the fourth year. A student that fails to meet the scholarship academic progress standards at the end of the year loses eligibility for the award.
