WIPL awards scholarships to 21 CCU students

  • Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Twenty-one Coastal Carolina University students have been awarded annual scholarships for the 2013-2014 academic year through Women in Philanthropy and Leadership for Coastal Carolina University (WIPL).

Among the recipients were Dorothy Connor of Ladson, a senior majoring in health promotion, The Sun News Educational Foundation; and Emily Murray of Summerville, a multiple-year WIPL scholarship recipient and a junior majoring in marine science.

WIPL is a group of philanthropic women from the community and the university whose donations and service promote higher education and leadership. Each year the organization awards annual scholarships to deserving Coastal Carolina University students.

To be eligible for the 2013-2014 WIPL annual scholarship, currently enrolled students must have completed a minimum of 15 credit hours with a cumulative collegiate grade point average of at least 3.0, and demonstrate financial need. Preference is given to students from Horry, Georgetown, Dillon, Marion or Williamsburg counties. Candidates must also submit a written statement expressing how the scholarship will assist their academic preparation for attaining their career goals and how they demonstrate leadership. With the recommendations of the WIPL Scholarship Committee, all awards are coordinated through the university’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
