CLEVELAND — Dr. Albert Nylander, Delta State University’s dean of Graduate and Continuing Studies, announced that the Graduate Office has been awarded $100,000 by the Robert M. Hearin Foundation to support ten graduate students.

These funds will be used to provide Hearin Scholars fellowships (tuition and stipends) for outstanding graduate students in financial need who undertake full-time study for the master of science in community development, master in business administration or master of education in counseling. Delta State will use $100,000 to provide each of the 10 Hearin Scholars (1) a 10-month stipend totaling $5,000; and (2) $5,000 for each fellow’s tuition annually.

Priority is given to recruiting students who have a 3.25 grade point average and who desire to live and work in Mississippi, preferably the Mississippi Delta. Interested students must have a bachelor’s degree in a discipline related to one of the respective graduate programs and these students must first be admitted by the graduate faculty and coordinators in the respective departments.
