Admission Office Seeks Volunteers for Scholarship Interview Weekends
Faculty and staff members are needed to serve as interviewers for three scholarship
interview weekends hosted by the Office of Admission in February and March. The three

Scholarship and the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship.
Faculty and staff members are strongly encouraged to take advantage of weekends as
opportunities to serve to aid in the recruitment of the University’s fall 2018 freshman
The full-tuition Presidential Scholarship is awarded to a select number of SLU’s most
qualified freshman applicants. This year, the University will invite approximately
500 students to interview for the Presidential Scholarship during the course of two
consecutive weekends. Interviews will take place on Saturday, Feb. 17 and Saturday,
The Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship is awarded to students who are committed to
promoting diversity in society. Awardees must demonstrate leadership in multicultural,
school or community activities that espouse King’s ideals and present a vision to
increase diversity on SLU’s campus. Interviews for this scholarship will take place
on Saturday, March 24.
Each program also will feature an optional Friday evening reception that gives interviewers
an informal opportunity to meet the candidates. Breakfast and lunch will be served
at each interview event.
Because the scope of each scholarship weekend requires the involvement of so many
people, faculty and staff participation is essential to make each event a success.
