- Nominated by sponsoring Western Golf Association Clubs
Evans Scholars are expected to achieve a GPA above a 3.0. The program average is 3.2, and the absolute minimum term or cumulative GPA is a 2.5. An Evans Scholar is required to complete a minimum of 12 graded credits each term. Seniors in their final terms can request to take less than 12 credits if that is all they need to complete their graduation requirements, pending approval by the ESF Scholarship Committee.
Retaking a course and receiving a new grade in a later term does not change the GPA on record for the term in which the original course grade was received. However, in determining an Evans Scholar’s cumulative GPA, the official GPA posted by the University will be used. An incomplete grade must be made up immediately.
When determining scholarship probation and scholarship cancellation, an incomplete grade will be counted as an “F” until it has been made up with a passing grade. All Evans Scholars are required to be in good academic standing, with at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA, at the beginning of each academic year.
Summer school is required for Scholars who get below a 2.5 in their spring term. An Evans Scholar may be placed on “scholarship probation” for failure to achieve a term or cumulative grade point average of 2.5. Successful completion of less than 12 graded credits may also result in scholarship probation. Scholars that do not receive above a 2.5 GPA, term or cumulative, are responsible to notify the ESF Scholarship Committee.
