MURFREESBORO — Emily Young, a freshman from Whitwell, Tennessee, majoring in computer information systems, is the first recipient of the Hawkins Endowed Scholarship at Middle Tennessee State University.
The $1,500 one-time stipend is awarded to an undergraduate scholarship recipient in the Jones College of Business. This scholarship was established to recognize outstanding full-time students enrolled in the Jones College who have achieve and maintain positive academic records (minimum GPA or 3.5 on all completed coursework) and demonstrated financial need.
“This educational scholarship will help broaden my horizon by allowing me to participate in the MTSU Accelerated Bachelor's and Master's Program offered for those pursuing a degree in information systems,” said Young, who also plans to join a sorority and pursue community service opportunities.
“This new program will allow me to obtain a Master of Science in Information Systems degree within five years instead of gaining a master's degree after six. I am very excited for what my future holds now that I will be able to participate in this extraordinary program.”
