Dr. L. Terry Oggel Scholarship
The Dr. L. Terry Oggel Scholarship shall be used to recruit to VCU’s MA program in English students of high quality who will specialize in American literature. The scholarship will be awarded to an incoming MA graduate student. The English department’s MA Committee will determine which deserving incoming student will receive the scholarship. Until the amount of this scholarship is sufficient to assure completion of the MA degree in one year, this Scholarship can be awarded to the same MA student for two consecutive years so that the person can complete his or her degree. When the Scholarship is sufficient to pay for one year, the award will be for one year of graduate work with a different student receiving the award each year.
Please note: Students do not apply for this scholarship. All nominations and selections are made by the English department’s MA Committee
