Applications will be considered complete upon receipt of: (1) a statement (a maximum of two typewritten pages in length) from the student outlining the merits of their academic achievement, their goals of their graduate degree program and career aspirations, the personal and societal value of their extra-curricular activities, and an indication of their financial need; (2) a letter of support from their major professor; (3) a complete and signed vita, and (4) all academic transcripts.
The recipient of the John A. Jackman Endowed Scholarship shall receive $1,500 applicable to payment of their tuition and fees during the award year. Dr. Jackman was an exceptionally gifted Extension entomologist who exceled at adult learning and had a passion to teach others about entomology.
Those applicants who have demonstrated an aptitude and appreciation for extension entomology will be given preference, but any graduate student in good standing in Entomology can apply for this scholarship. All awardees are expected to acknowledge support from the John A. Jackman Endowed Scholarship in a letter to the Jackman family and in all presentations and publications as appropriate.
