ENGLISH DEPARTMENT SCHOLARSHIPS To honor outstanding students in English and to remember excellent teachers of English, the English Department at GCC has established a variety of scholarships of $250 each. All applicants must be enrolled in a GCC English course during the 2011-2012 academic year. Students wishing to apply for these awards must ask their English teacher for a recommendation on an English Department Scholarship form and must supply their teacher with two samples of their finest writing. Applications are available from the department secretary in 05-151 or on the English Department web page: www.gc.maricopa.edu/English/purpleshirts.htm. All decisions on awards will be made by the GCC English Department Scholarship Committee and will be final. Writing samples submitted will be returned to the student via the student's English instructor. Scholarship winners will be notified by mail. Winners will be required to successfully complete the spring semester in order to receive their check. 1.
