To be rewarded this scholarship a number of factors will be reviewed by a team of advisors. This includes the excellence of academics, the recommendation letters, the personal essay, and the financial need of the student. While only a 2.5 GPA is required to receive the Susan Buffett Scholarship it is more likely given to those with a higher one. If a student is rewarded then they will receive the scholarship throughout the years at their college. Every semester or quarter they are enrolled they will get the amount agreed upon at the beginning of their freshman year.
The Susan Buffett Scholarship will renew itself every year as long as the student maintains their grades and stays out of trouble. They must also take at least 9 credits per term to keep their scholarship. Failure to do this or a failure to get a grade point average of over 2.0 will result in a probationary period. If the student fails this requirement consecutively they will be stripped of their scholarship. For special terms like study abroad the request for the scholarship will be reviewed by the scholarship advisors. It depends on every case but they will most likely reward the student with their scholarship.The William H.
