Osher Reentry Scholarship Established

Body: 
A new source of scholarships for non-traditional students became available in January 2012 with a grant to DSU of $50,000 by the Bernard Osher Foundation to establish DSU’s Osher Reentry Scholarship Fund. The Osher Reentry Scholarship Fund will be allocated to non-traditional students at DSU using the following guidelines to select Osher Scholars: Students have experienced a cumulative gap in their education of five or more years. Students are at the undergraduate level and pursuing their first baccalaureate degree. Students anticipate participation in the workforce for a significant period of time subsequent to graduation. Students demonstrate financial need, as well as academic promise and a commitment to complete a degree program.   The new Osher Re-Entry Scholarship is available for full-time and part-time non-traditional students such as Laura Fissette, DSU human resources major from Smyrna. Osher Scholars may be full-time or part-time students, and may be awarded the scholarship again in the second and subsequent years if they continue to meet the criteria and funds are available. The scholarship awards will only be applied to tuition cost. This scholarship opportunity is not available to students seeking an additional degree, or for visiting international students. Students are encouraged to apply today for the Osher Reentry Scholarship. Applications are available at the Offices of Financial Aid and Development.  For more information contact the Office of Development by phoning 302.857.6055 or emailing dsufoundation@desu.edu.

Barclays Bank Mentor Program

Body: 
Barclays has launched a new annual internship program with Delaware State University in which six DSU students will work at Barclaycard US in its Credit Risk Organization for a two-month assignment. Amer Sajed, CEO of Barclaycard US, and DSU President Harry L. Williams unveiled the new Barclays Bank Mentor Program (BBMP) during a media event at the Barclaycard site in Wilmington. Also in attendance and speaking in support of the initiative were U.S. Sen. Thomas R. Carper and U.S. Sen. Chris Coons. “This program underscores the commitment of Barclays to citizenship, community and the future of Delaware – its young people,” said Mr. Sajed.  “We’re focused on ensuring that our energy, ideas, expertise and passion are leveraged to help the different causes we support.  This program illustrates this approach in action because our colleagues will leverage their mentoring skills and share their knowledge to help young people.” Dr. Williams said the program is part of a series of new initiatives to make Delaware State University stronger and enhance its national reputation. “We are very proud that a major company agreed to provide our students with this type of support,” Dr. Williams said. "Initiatives like the Barclays Bank Mentor Program help DSU to achieve the vision by providing an opportunity for our students to build upon their academic training in the skills necessary to become the first choice of employers in this industry. " Each student will have Barclays business mentor and receive important, marketable experience through assignments in gathering data, conducting analysis, leveraging computer programs such as Excel and SAS, working on teams, implementing programs and presenting to a corporate audience. Carmen Mikhaiel, a DSU student and Barclays intern, spoke on behalf of the other interns. “In the business world, this program is great for networking and will boost our resumes -- an advantage after graduation when we go into the work force,” she said. Sen. Carper said that DSU’s partnership with Barclays is reflective of the direction the University is moving in to prepare its students for success. “DSU is breaking into the top 15 HBCUs and is working toward breaking into the top 10,” Sen. Carper said. “DSU is a school on the move.” Sen. Coons noted the importance of public-private partnerships in driving job opportunities in Delaware. “It is very important for area employers to support our educational institutions,” he said.  “This is a model of what a public-private partnership should be about.” The inaugural group of DSU-Barclays interns, their years and majors are: Clarence Banks, sophomore, finance & banking; Tiona Campbell, sophomore, accounting; Dwight Deloatch, sophomore, finance & banking; Carmen Mikhaiel, junior, accounting; Palesa Motshidi, sophomore, accounting; and Clifford Streater, senior, management information systems. Barclays awarded a total of $120,000 in support of the BBMP during 2012.  U.S. Sen. Tom Carper, DSU President Harry L. Williams, U.S. Sen. Chris Coons and Barclaycard CEO Amer Sajed.
