Dr. F. Gregory Dickey of Jackson, Mo., made a $10,000 gift to establish the scholarship. His gift will be matched with an additional $10,000 through a University matching gift program.
The matching gift program is part of the Honoring Tradition – Inspiring Success Comprehensive Campaign through the Southeast Missouri University Foundation. This program allowed donors to make a minimum commitment of $5,000 to a maximum commitment of $10,000 through donation or pledge by March 1, 2014, that qualified for a $1-for-$1 match. The goal of the Campaign is to raise $40 million for student scholarships, academic programs and renovations that benefit students both today and tomorrow.
The recipient of the renewable F. Gregory Dickey Endowed Scholarship will be a graduate student enrolled at Southeast Missouri State University who is majoring in counseling with an overall grade point average of 3.5. The award is for a student enrolled full time per academic year. The Department of Educational Administration and Counseling Scholarship Committee will select the recipient.
Dr. F. Gregory Dickey, professor emeritus of the Department of Educational Administration and Counseling, taught at Southeast Missouri State University from 1966 to 1988.
