Robert G. Mayes Memorial Scholarship
Robert G. Mayes Sr. started CSU with a vision.
He wanted to provide adult learners with practicable skills that would allow them to achieve success in their work or career of choice. As a veteran and family man, Mayes understood the hardships many face while struggling to create a better life for their family and themselves.
This led him to develop an emergency management services training program and travel the country instructing industries in compliance with occupational safety and health regulations. He soon came to understand and appreciate the value of these training sessions and decided to establish certifications from the training.
These endeavors proved successful and soon Mayes, ever the dreamer, wondered how he could provide the training to more hungry minds. Maybe…online and maybe offer a …degree?
Thus began the genesis of the vision and dream for Columbia Southern University.
The dreamer’s dream is now a reality that educates thousands as they strive to reach their academic and professional goals via online education.
CSU wants to help our alumni continue their education to boost career and opportunities in life. As such, we offer our alumni the Robert G. Mayes Memorial Scholarship. This honored scholarship was established in loving memory of Dr. Mayes, CSU founder.
This $5,000 scholarship is awarded annually to a CSU alumnus who wants to further his/her education by obtaining an online master’s or doctorate degree with CSU.
To be eligible for consideration, candidates must have graduated from CSU with a cumulative grade point average of 3.8 or higher.
Nominees may be interviewed by phone by the selection committee. President Robert Mayes will approve the selection by the committee.
Once the alumnus is notified, CSU will post the name of the scholarship recipient on the CSU website and in the CSU Communicator.
For more information, please contact Dean of Students, Poche Waguespack at email@example.com.
Good luck and thank you for continuing to reach your educational dreams with CSU!
Deadline for Robert G. Mayes Memorial Scholarship is Dec. 15.
