The purpose of the Scholarship Plan is to encourage and assist worthy young men and women to prepare themselves through college training for positions of community leadership and service.
A maximum of ten scholarships may be awarded each year under the Hatton Lovejoy Scholarship Plan. Not more than six awards may be made to any one sex.
The maximum amount of a scholarship award shall be $2,250.00 per semester of college attendance for 8 semesters, or a total maximum value per scholarship award of $18,000.00.
Students receiving scholarship awards may attend any college or university of their choice approved by the Hatton Lovejoy Scholarship Plan Committee. They will be expected to pursue a full course of study each quarter or semester during the period of the award.
The amount of any scholarship award shall not exceed the actual expenses of tuition, room, board, books and lab fees of the student as approved by the Hatton Lovejoy Scholarship Plan Committee. A recipient of a Lovejoy Scholarship award will not be permitted, without specific approval of the Hatton Lovejoy Scholarship Plan Committee, to accept any other scholarship funds or loans except from parents or legal guardian. Such approval is routinely given, unless the total scholarships received would exceed the actual allowed school expenses.
Additional scholarship awards to substitute for vacancies in scholarships previously awarded may be made in the discretion of the Hatton Lovejoy Scholarship Plan Committee.
Applicants for scholarship awards shall have been residents of Troup County, Georgia, for at least two years. Applicants for scholarship awards must be graduates of (or scheduled for graduation within six months) an accredited high school with a scholastic standing in the upper 25% of their class. Applicants for scholarship awards, while in college, must maintain a cumulative scholastic standing in the upper one-half of their college class.
