STUDENTS AWARDED MEAL PLAN AND TEXTBOOK SCHOLARSHIPS FOR FALL 2011
Houston, September 9, 2011 Several lucky students have some extra money in their pockets
this semester thanks to the Meal Plan and Barnes and Noble Textbook scholarships from
Auxiliary Services. This fall semester, fifteen students were awarded the scholarships to pay for
extra college expenses and relieve some of their financial stress.
UH students had the opportunity to apply for the auxiliary scholarships through a new online
application process during the summer. Eligibility requirements also changed this semester to
target academically-strong freshmen and transfer students as well as returning students.
Recipients were selected by the University Scholarship Committee and received their awards in
time for the start of the semester.
Four new or incoming students, two returning students and two transfer students received the
Meal Plan scholarship which includes a Lifestyle 21 meal plan from UH Dining Services and
