Notification of Scholarship Awards

Scholarship Background
The Shubert Family Programming Scholarship was established to recognize the efforts and achievements of Student Union & Activities Programs and student volunteers.

Funding for the scholarship was provided upon the recommendation of Scott and Maria Heinzman from the Halberg Foundation.  Maria was the UC Programs President from 1986-1987 and Scott was the Concerts Chair in the same year.

The foundation was set up by one of Scott’s late aunts.  Scott’s mother is the director of the Foundation.  Scott and Maria recommended that the Halberg Foundation establish a UC Programs scholarship.  The scholarship is named in honor of Tom and Cheryl Shubert.

One scholarship is awarded each year, specifically for an executive officer of the programming board.  If funding is available, a scholarship is also awarded to another eligible applicant.  The exact amount of the awards will vary depending on the funds available and will be determined and announced in early spring of each year, when applications are made available.

In 2005, UC Programs changed its name to the Tech Activities Board (TAB).

The funds are directly credited to tuition charges.  Recipients are announced at the Student Union & Activities recognition event in May.

Application Deadline
Applications must be submitted to Student Union & Activities (Student Union, Room #203) by 5:00pm on April 13, 2012.  Questions about the scholarship should be directed to Matt Ducatt or Jewel Downing at 806-742-3636.
