Living on the University of Memphis Lambuth may now be more affordable. Beginning
with the fall 2012 semester, the U of M will offer the Campus Life Grant to full-time
students who live on the Lambuth Campus.
The Campus Life Grant provides funding to undergraduate students who serve as leaders
in campus organizations and activities. This includes involvement in academic organizations,
programs, or activities; providing community service on campus; and participating
in multicultural affairs, student government, activities, or recruitment; campus recreation
or residence life.
To be considered for the grant, first-time freshmen must have a minimum 2.75 high
school GPA. Transfer students must have at least a 2.5 GPA. Recipients must be full-time
students and live in on-campus housing at the Lambuth Campus.
The grant is for one year with a possible renewal for a second year. For the first
year, the award is $3,000 ($1,500 per semester); in the second year, the grant is
$2,000 ($1,000 per semester).
“The Campus Life Grant is an excellent incentive for students who desire to live on
campus but need some financial assistance to be able to do so,” said Betty Huff, vice
provost for Enrollment Services and acting director of Admissions. “Students who participate
in the program will have their cost of attendance reduced while being part of a student
engagement opportunity that will establish both the academic and student life culture
at the Lambuth Campus when the fall semester begins.”
An application for the Campus Life Grant is online at bf.memphis.edu/lambuth.php. For more information, contact Lisa Warmath, manager of Student and Academic Services
