SNU Student Receives SWASAP Scholarship
The Southwest Association of Student Assistance Programs (SWASAP) recently awarded a scholarship to Robin Womack, a senior at Southern Nazarene University. Robin is one of 38 recipients from 5 states receiving a $250.00 scholarship totaling the amount awarded by SWASAP this year at $9,500.00. There were 116 applications made for the scholarship.
“The SWASAP scholarship formally recognizes all of Robin’s hard work and involvement at SNU. She excels both in and out of the classroom,” said Beth Wetmore, Academic Advising Specialist in the Student Support Services program at Southern Nazarene University. “She’s a student government executive, a member of the Delta Mu Delta and an important part of the Sports Information department as a Game Day intern. Robin is a great example of what students can achieve, and we’re proud she is a part of our Student Support Services (SSS) program.”
SSS is fully funded by a federal grant through the U.S. Department of Education and the TRiO program. The TRiO Grant supplies approximately $220,000 per year for five years. Southern Nazarene University’s SSS program is one of more than 900 programs across the country.
The purpose of the Southwest Association of Student Assistance Programs (SWASAP) is to advance and defend the ideal of equal educational opportunity for all TRiO eligible individuals by providing its members the guidance and support needed to foster those activities necessary to cause the target population to persist in achieving their educational goals. SWASAP represents the states of Louisiana, Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
