NEW: The UCT Heaston Scholarship Program was established to help young people achieve their dreams of a college education. The program consists of three scholarships to be granted to three deserving students annually; each covering four years of undergraduate education. The scholarships are:

  • The Jack & Betty Heaston Memorial Scholarship – $6,000 per year for 4 years
  • The Betty Y. Heaston Memorial Scholarship – $3,000 per year for 4 years
  • The Jack Heaston Memorial Scholarship – $3,000 per year for 4 years

A major criterion for the scholarships is for applicants to show evidence of hard work and overcoming obstacles to achieve their goals. Applicants will need to discuss their academic careers and extracurricular activities, and provide examples of hard work, challenges they have had to face, and persistence in the face of adversity. Additionally, we require examples of commitment to community service. The Heaston scholarships will be awarded to students with the equivalent of high school senior status. Applications are due February 1 and scholarship awards will be announced March 31.
