The Hazel Lee Gaddis Engineering Scholarship supports students who are pursuing their studies through Meredith’s Engineering Dual Degree Program, a partnership between Meredith College and NC State University. At completion, students in this program earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from Meredith College in chemistry or mathematics and a Bachelor of Science degree from NCSU in chemical or environmental engineering, or civil, computer, electrical, industrial or mechanical engineering.
General Norman C. Gaddis established the Hazel Lee Gaddis Engineering Scholarship at Meredith College in memory of his wife, Hazel Lee Gaddis.
The Paschal Scholars Program provides a unique opportunity for talented women to pursue careers in mathematics, computer science, science and engineering. Initially supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation to support underrepresented populations in these fields, Paschal Scholars not only receive a scholarship, they also participate in a learning community. A mentoring program helps to prepare students for careers in industry, government and education, as well as assist students in exploring options for graduate studies. For freshmen and sophomores, the emphasis of the mentoring program is on academic success and achievement.
In addition to mentoring, Paschal Scholars have the opportunity to attend a speakers program, in which outside speakers address topics of interest for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The Paschal Scholars Program is named for Rosa Catherine Paschal, the first person to earn a mathematics degree from Meredith College.
Paschal Scholars receive a scholarship ranging from $2,000–$5,000 per year, with the option of yearly renewal for up to four years or as appropriate. The scholarship award is based on academic credentials, potential for success at Meredith and financial need.
Paschal Scholars must demonstrate strong academic potential to qualify for the program. Questions about the application should be directed to the Office of Admissions.
