The Frederick and Mary F Beckley Left Handed Scholarship

Left Handed Scholarships

Currently there is only one school that offers left hand scholarships - this is the Juniata College in Pennsylvania.

So far there is only one school that offers scholarship with a special qualification that is left-handedness. This particular school is the Pennsylvania's Juniata College. Juniata offers southpaws of free educational grant through The Frederick and Mary F Buckley Scholarship program. This program was established in 1979 by Mary Francis Buckley. Since then, it has helped and sent over 40 students to school.

The prize is a gift of Mary Francis Buckley, a southpaw Juniata alumna who met her husband, Frederick, when he also attended the college back in the 1920s.

This academic grant is exclusive for applicants who have been studying in Juniata College for at least one year. A student can request an application form for a left handed scholarship from the school and upon its submission, the student will be asked if he is left-handed. Left-handedness is simply one of the conditions in applying for this scholarship. Although the committee that screens an applicant does not strictly check if an applicant is left-handed, it will be best to prepare for a list of personal references who can confirm that you are indeed left-handed. Aside from this qualification, an applicant should have a good academic performance and excellent leadership skills. Because the scholarship grant is for the students of Juniata only, all an applicant should do is to submit the certification of his grades and recommendation. Generally, a student will be required of a grade not lower than 3.39 – better if he proves to be on the top of his class. This will be evaluated by the office for the admitting committee.
