DONALD SCHAEFER SCHOLARSHIP
The William Donald Schaefer Scholarship Program has been
consolidated into the Workforce Shortage Student
Assistance Grant Program.
If you received an
award under the WDS program name, you agreed to begin employment in the State within one year after completion
of your degree program. You
are required to perform the service obligation one year
for each year, or portion thereof, that you received the
scholarship. The service obligation
begins after completion of the degree program, and cannot be
fulfilled prior to completion. If you held this scholarship
with any other award requiring a service obligation, you must
perform your service in consecutive years.
employment is defined as employment
in government at any level, public interest organizations,
public schools, and nonprofit organizations under 501(C-3) or
(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, such as those whose
primary purposes are to help needy or disadvantaged persons,
or disabled individuals, or to protect the environment.
new awards made in these majors
or occupational fields are now made under the Workforce Shortage Student
Assistance Grant Program. Please visit our website
