The Roy and Gwen Steeley Presidential Scholarship is now available to students attending West Virginia University from Jefferson or Berkeley counties.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 from an accredited West Virginia high school, possess good character and demonstrate outstanding citizenship.

Current WVU students may also apply if they meet the same requirements.

The scholarship may be renewed each academic year provided the student maintains a 3.0 GPA .

Students must complete the Free Application for Financial Student Aid by the state and federal deadlines to be considered. The WVU Financial Aid Office will determine the recipient based on the student with the greatest financial need.

A donation by Roy and Gwen Steeley of Charles Town establishes the endowed scholarship that will benefit students annually from Berkeley and Jefferson counties.

The gift was made through the WVU Foundation, a private nonprofit corporation that generates, receives and administers private gifts for the benefit of WVU .
