Carmen Cox Business Scholarship Application 2024

Background

The Greeneville City Board of Education serves as Trustees for the Carmen Cox Scholarship Fund.  The Trust was established in 1996 through a bequest from the estate of T. Elmer Cox in memory of his wife, Carmen Cox.  The Trust exists to provide scholarship assistance for post-secondary education to outstanding business students in each of the high schools located in Greene County.  The number of awards and their amounts are determined annually by the Trustees.

Eligibility Guidelines

Students applying for a Carmen Cox Scholarship must be matriculating seniors in the spring of the application date.  Awards will be made to students who are planning a program of study at an accredited post-secondary institution which leads to a degree or certificate in business or a business- related field.  The Carmen Cox Scholarship is awarded solely on merit and is not based on financial need.

The scholarship award is good for the academic year immediately following the award.  Funds for the scholarship will be sent to the post-secondary institution of the receipient when the post-secondary institution confirms enrollment by the recipient. Checks will be made payable to the post-secondary institution and the recipient and mailed to the financial aid office of the post-secondary institution. Students who do not enroll during the academic year following their graduation will forfeit their claim to the scholarship.  Scholarship funds may be used for education-related expenses, including tuition, books, room, board, fees, or any other charges allowable under federal/state student assistance guidelines.  Funds not expended during the first academic year may be applied to future academic years utilizing the same guidelines in this document as long as the student remains in good academic standing at the institution. 

Selection Process

The Award Selection Committee appointed by the Trustees screens and rates all applications.  After completion of the evaluation of the applications, the Award Selection Committee brings its recommendations to the Trustees for consideration.  At that time, the Trustees will make the final determination regarding the scholarship awards.

Application Deadline

The scholarship applications must be received on or before May 27th during the application year.  Late applications will not be considered.  

Additional Information

An official transcript of course work, two letters of recommendation from high school teachers (one business teacher and one other teacher), and one letter of recommendation from a community member must accompany this application.  Any applications selected for interviews will be notified in advance.
