What is the Plymouth State University Scholarship Committee?

This committee is responsible for awarding Scholarship and Technology grants to the PSU community. The committee consists of at least three AAUP faculty members in good standing, appointed by the AAUP President as needed. Committee members will be responsible for granting the following two scholarships/grants, made possible by PSU-AAUP Membership Dues.

What technology is offered?

The AAUP Jeremiah Duncan Computer Scholarship

This program provides refurbished laptop computers from University surplus to students who find themselves without a functioning laptop or the means to get one. The program functions during regular semesters of the academic year. Students may apply at any time to the Scholarship Committee using this form. Awards will be reviewed and made on a rolling basis after application by student and confirmation by advisor. 

Advisors will confirm student need and recommend students for this award according to their own judgment. The committee will convene on an ad hoc basis and send recommendations to the AAUP President for final decision. After the first year, during which we have budgeted for a maximum of ten awards, we will reassess need and resources and adjust accordingly.
