June is Child College Scholarship Application Month

Now is the time to apply for the Scholarship for Sons and Daughters of the Faculty and Staff of Yale University for the academic year 2007/2008.  If eligible, you should submit your application to the Benefits Office this month.  Please see instructions listed below.

To qualify for the Scholarship benefit, the following criteria must be met:

The employee/parent of the student must be a regular full-time member of faculty or staff and have completed six (6) years of continuous full-time employment preceding the date of the student’s matriculation.  Full-time for faculty is 100% appointment and for staff is 35 or more hours per week.

An employee who has experienced a break in service can take advantage of another formula for eligibility.  He or she may receive credit for four (4) years of previous full-time employment and must also complete an additional four (4) years of current continuous full-time employment for a total of eight (8) years.  The formula for eligibility that qualifies an employee sooner will be used.

A qualified student must be under age 25, enrolled full-time at an accredited four (4) year or two (2) year undergraduate college and be a candidate for either a bachelor’s or associate’s degree.  He or she must maintain an acceptable academic record that would qualify for financial aid.

For new students to the program, a copy of the student’s birth certificate or passport must accompany the initial application.

For returning students, applications must be renewed each year.
