The Kinkead Scholarship is awarded to a full-time junior, senior, or graduate student pursuing a degree in English with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in all course work and a 3.25 in English courses. Applicants must show promise of leadership and service. This award was made possible by way of a gift from Dr. Joyce Kinkead, a native of Warsaw, MO, who received her B.A. and M.A. degrees in English at Central in 1975 and 1977, respectively. She is currently Associate Vice President for Research at Utah State University.
