2013 Scholarship Application Overview

I. Introduction
The Fred E. Woodall Memorial Scholarship Program was established in 2006 in memory of Dr. Fred E. Woodall, School Psychology trainer, and MAPS founding member and Past-President. Dr. Woodall also served as Mississippi State Delegate to the National Association of School Psychologists. The scholarship is designed to ease financial barriers facing graduate students pursuing a Specialist or Doctoral Degree in School Psychology at a NASP-approved program within the state of Mississippi. The program seeks to support scholars who intend to practice school psychology in a school setting following graduation. The scholarship is presented at the annual MAPS Conference and awards a minimum of one $500 scholarship annually to a chosen graduate student. This program is funded by the generous donations of individuals and proceeds from the Fred E. Woodall Memorial Scholarship Fund Auction.

II. Eligibility
To be considered for the scholarship, a candidate must:


    Be a current full-time or part-time student enrolled in a NASP-approved program at a university within the state of MS with the goal of becoming a practicing School Psychologist

    Be in good academic standing

    Have a minimum cumulative overall GPA of 3.0

    Be a MAPS member

III. Selection Criteria
Each application will be reviewed by the Fred E. Woodall Memorial Scholarship Program Selection Committee. The Committee will consider many factors in determining the scholarship recipient. The applicant's commitment and contributions to professional organizations, both state and national; participation and leadership in campus and/or community organizations/activities; achievements, awards, and/or accomplishments; and career and personal goals will be evaluated. A scoring rubric developed by the scholarship committee and approved by the MAPS Executive Committee will be used to evaluate applications. The scholarship committee will review all completed applications, and the applicant with the highest overall score will receive the scholarship. In the event of a tie, the MAPS Executive Committee will cast the deciding vote.
