Cadet Corps Alumni Council
Endowed Scholarship Purpose

The UTA Cadet Corps Alumni Chapter (CCAC) hereby gives $10,000.00 to the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System for the use and benefit of The University of Texas at Arlington. Said gift shall be used to establish The University of Texas at Arlington Cadet Corps Alumni Chapter Endowed Scholarship. Distributions from the endowment will be used to provide financial assistance to U.S. Army Military Science cadets enrolled at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Award

The award may be used for tuition, fees and books for the awardee(s). The award may also be used for room and board and other living essentials for the awardee(s). The award may be renewed for up to 4 years as long as a minimum 2.8 GPA is maintained. Distribution of the award will be made by the University of Texas at Arlington and dispersed through the University's accounting system. All distributions from the endowment will reinvest into the corpus of the endowment and no awards will be made from the endowment until the principal reaches $25,000. Then, no more than 80% of the fund's annual earnings on the principal may be distributed as awards each year. The goal is to build the endowment fund year after year. The 80% of annual earnings distributed may be given as one award, or as several awards to different students, at the discretion of the Awards Committee. The remaining 20% of the endowment's annual earnings will reinvest into the corpus of the endowment.

Eligibility

In awarding scholarship monies, the Awards Committee will have the option of offering the award(s) to students who have successfully completed two semesters at UTA in the U.S. Army Military Science program (and who have maintained an average GPA of 2.8 for all courses), or of offering the award(s) to recruit outstanding prospective students into the U.S. Army Military Science program at UTA. The student(s) must demonstrate a strong interest in serving in the U.S. Army upon graduation, and be committed to the pursuit of an Army commission. All applicants must be recommended by the Military Science Department as worthy candidates for the award(s).

Factors in Selection

Candidates should be nominated and selected based on the following criteria, in order of importance:

  1. Military leadership potential
  2. Character and integrity
  3. High academic achievement
  4. Financial need

Administration

This endowment shall never become a part of the Permanent University Fund, the Available University Fund or the General Fund of the State of Texas, and shall never be subject to appropriation by the Legislature of the State of Texas. All future additions to this endowment shall be subject to the provisions of this instrument. If, in the opinion of the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System, future circumstances change so that the purposes for which the endowment is established become illegal, impractical, or obsolete, said Board of Regents may designate an alternative use for the endowment payout to further the goals of The University of Texas at Arlington, so long as the alternative use remains consistent with the objective of providing scholarships and financial aid to Military Science students at UTA. Or, in the absence of a Military Science program at UTA, the scholarships and financial aid would go to other UTA students.

This endowment may be merged or commingled with other funds held by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System for investment purposes in accordance with the policies of the Board of Regents. Funds distributed from the endowment in a year may be retained and expended for the purposes of the endowment in subsequent years, or may be reinvested at the discretion of the Board of Regents or The University of Texas at Arlington administration, as a permanent addition to the principal of the Cadet Corps Endowed Scholarship fund.


Application Process

Prospective award recipients will be required to complete an application form furnished by the Military Science Department. Such application will be made by a date specified by the Military Science Department. Applicants will also provide transcripts, letters of recommendation from one or more officers of the Military Science Department, and other documentation the Military Science Department might require. Due dates and application procedures will be established by the UTA Military Science Department. The recipient(s) of the award(s) may apply for renewal of the scholarship for up to three years (i.e., a grand total of four years-the first year plus renewal for three years).

The Awards Committee will be made up of the President of CCAC, two Vice Presidents of CACC appointed by the CCAC President, an Alumni Association staff member appointed by the Director of the Alumni Association and a designee appointed by the UTA Director of Development. Each member of the Awards Committee will have equal vote, with any "tie vote" to be decided by the CCAC President. The Awards Committee will be advised by a non-voting Military Science staff member appointed by the Professor of Military Science, who will present the applications to the Awards Committee along with his/her advice and counsel. The Awards Committee will recommend who receives the award(s) with final selection by the President of the University or President's designee.
