Bush Scholarship

This scholarship will be awarded annually to Ball State students with visual impairments. The scholarships are open to students who will be enrolled at Ball State for the coming academic year. Current students wishing to be considered for one of these scholarships must submit an application to Disability Services (DS) by April 15. Prospective students wishing to be considered for one of these scholarships must submit an application to DS by March 15. The Myrna Bush Scholarship Selection Committee will meet to determine the recipients of the scholarships. Students selected to receive these scholarships will be notified by May 15. While this is not a renewable scholarship, previous recipients are welcome to apply again for consideration.

The selection committee will consider four factors in determining scholarship recipients each year.

  • Appropriate documentation of a visual impairment on file with DS
  • The students grade point average (must be at least 2.0)
  • The students involvement in campus and community organizations and activities (special consideration will be given to students who are active in the Alliance for Disability Awareness)
  • Financial need (students should have submitted a FAFSA by March 10)

To be considered for this award, students must send either a letter or an email expressing an interest in being considered for a Bush Scholarship. This should include a description of why the student would be a good candidate for this scholarship. Please describe your campus activities, community involvements, and leadership experience.
