The Charles M. Bennett Memorial Scholarship has been established by the family of Dr. Charles M. Bennett, who was a professor of Counseling at Slippery Rock University form 1963-1986. The scholarship provides a monetary award that is intended to recognize a high level of academic achievement as well as evidence of financial need. It is the desire of the Bennett Family that each awardee shall utilize the scholarship award in any appropriate manner that would contribute to the student's ability to pursue a graduate degree awarded by the Department of Counseling and Development at Slippery Rock University. Applicants must be PA residents. 

The scholarship is awarded on an annual basis, and the amount of the award varies. A department committee will process the applications and make a determination of the year's awardees.

 Contact the department Chairperson for details.
