Barbara Hope Kem Endowed Scholarship
Awarded to students, with a preference for those with financial need, who demonstrate exceptional motivation to further their education and pursue a career in their chosen field. The award may be for an amount up to 100% of tuition and fees, and may be renewed for up to four years at the discretion of the scholarship committee. Applicants are required to submit a letter and supporting materials to be reviewed by the scholarship committee.
The donor’s purpose in establishing this scholarship is to provide financial assistance to students, while encouraging these students to reciprocate through future gifts to this scholarship after graduation. As a result, future students will also benefit from awards and, as alumni, recipients will receive the benefits afforded to donors to the Southeast Missouri University Foundation.
