Upon completion of his or her degree, each council scholar is expected to pledge a modest amount of financial support to the OMWC Scholarship Endowment Fund for a minimum of five years in order to “reseed” the program. This stipulation was designed to teach each scholar the simple but powerful “act of giving.” Each student also is expected to demonstrate his or her commitment to community service by undertaking a volunteer initiative to actively exhibit new leadership skills. Mentors continue to help guide the process, monitor development, and help each council scholar evaluate his or her growth.
For more information about the OMWC or the Council Scholarship Endowment Program, please contact The University of Mississippi Foundation at (622) 915-5944 or (800) 340-9542.
