Lutheran Freshman Scholarship
The Rolla Alumni Chapter of Beta Sigma Psi Fraternity through the auspices of Beta Sigma Psi Educational Foundation will award one scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to a first year male student attending the Missouri University of Science and Technology who is a member of any recognized Lutheran congregation.
The recipient of the scholarship is under no obligation to join Beta Sigma Psi Fraternity, although they will receive information from the chapter on the Missouri S&T Campus.
The scholarship will be paid directly to Missouri S&T to be applied as a tuition credit. Receipt of this award may impact the recipient's financial aid from other sources. Students and parents should refer to the financial aid section in the college catalog.
Three letters of recommendation are required and will weigh heavily in the selection process. These should include one letter from each of the following groups:
- Lutheran Clergy member, professional church worker, or congregation leader
- High school teacher, guidance counselor, or sponsor of extracurricular activity
- Civic group leader, employer, neighbor, or friend (any person the applicant has known for more than three years)
In the event of close balloting, the selection committee reserves the right to contact any person providing a reference for further information. An alternate will be chosen, but not announced, and will receive the award should the first recipient not attend Missouri S&T. Decisions of the committee are final.
