Since 2003, the Classified Staff Council has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships to benefit Fairmont State University employees and their children.
It takes commitment and generosity to keep the scholarship funded.
The full-time scholarship will be a $1,000 scholarship awarded on a per year basis. Distribution will occur in $500 increments for the Fall and Spring semester. The part-time scholarship will be a $500 scholarship awarded on a per year basis. Distribution will occur in $250 increments for the Fall and Spring semester. Applicants must re-apply each academic year. Candidates do not have to show a financial need; must have an overall GPA 2.0 or better if a returning college student; must be a FSU full-time classified staff employee, a classified staff's spouse, child or step-child residing with the employee and/or is claimed as a dependent for federal income tax; previous recipients allowed to re-apply.

The Fairmont State University Staff Council will be publishing an employee/student/former employee/former student/alumnus/alumna/community member COOKBOOK for 2015—and we want your recipes! You know all of those wonderful potlucks and picnics and parties and office celebrations we’ve had down through the years, the ones with the “Oh, I’ve gotta have that recipe!” and “You HAVE to bring this next time!” and “May I take the rest of this home with me?” comments? You know those tried-and-true family and friend dishes without which no gathering is complete? Remember your mom’s or dad’s or grandma’s or uncle’s/aunt’s special recipe, always made with love and always looked forward to by the whole family, if not the whole community? These are what we want for the Sesquicentennial cookbook! Submit your recipe. Recipes are due no later than August 31, 2015
