Jim and Betty Dye Scholarships are awarded from five hundred dollars ($500) to three thousand seven hundred fifty dollars ($3,750) per semester toward tuition for a maximum of eight (8) consecutive undergraduate fall and spring semesters ($4,000 to $30,000 total).
The amount of the Jim and Betty Dye Scholarship is determined prior to the start of each semester. Receipt of university scholarships, awards, or grants is considered primary and will be applied toward tuition first and the Jim and Betty Dye Scholarship applied secondary. The amount of the Jim and Betty Dye Scholarship will be $3,750 deducted by the amount of other scholarships/awards/grants received (excluding Pell Grants and one-time awards totaling $1,000 or less), but no less than $500 per semester toward tuition.
Individuals who are awarded full tuition scholarships such as Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship, Hammond College Bound, or 21st Century Scholarship, etc. are ineligible to receive a Jim and Betty Dye Scholarship.
All Scholarship payments are made directly to the University attended by the student and are applied toward tuition only. Non-tuition student fees such as room and board, books, transportation, parking, health and activity fees are the responsibility of the student. If a scholarship recipient leaves the University during the semester, refunds are returned to the Foundation.
