THE 2019 SUSAN M. HUNTER SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION PROCESS IS NOW CLOSED.

IT WILL REOPEN FEBRUARY 1, 2020. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES. 

Susan M. Hunter Scholarship

The Susan M. Hunter Correctional Scholarship is named in honor of Susan M. Hunter, former Director of the Prisons Division at the National Institute of Corrections, as a lasting tribute to her commitment to the field of corrections.   

Susan passed away in 2004 from breast cancer.  ASCA’s Past Presidents’ Committee had been working toward a scholarship program for children of correctional staff. In the wake of her death, ASCA grieved the loss of Susan, and the Committee made a logical decision to name the scholarship program after Susan, who had embodied the ideals of an educated and enlightened correctional workforce. Her life’s work continues in our memory of what she held dear, which is now expressed in our profession with contributions to deserving students whose parents labor in our Association's chosen field. 

 

Eligibility Requirements for the Susan M. Hunter Correctional Scholarship: 

Students must be the son or daughter of a corrections employee (current full-time, retired, or deceased) within any ASCA member department of corrections. Vendor employees, correctional employees, their siblings, spouses, and grandchildren are not eligible. 
Incoming first-time freshmen, along with enrolled full-time college and graduate students, must have a minimum high school GPA of 3.3. Undergraduate students may be working toward a degree in any area of study, while graduate students field of study must be in Corrections/Criminal Justice. 
Students must be enrolled full-time in an accredited two-year or four-year college or university, or an accredited graduate program. 
For the 2019 awards: scholarship amounts will be $1,500 for undergraduate students, $1,500 for graduate students and $750 for individuals who in a prior year had received either a $1,000 or $1,500 scholarship. Any questions can be directed to [email protected]
