Annual awards for diverse, incoming freshmen or transfer students accepted to Pittsburg State University, who qualify for the Academic Achievement Award. Diversity status will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Applicants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA or higher and have a minimum of 24 credit hours per academic year. Factors that compose diversity are members of a minority race, low socioeconomic first-generation college students, or certain geographic areas. Due date and number of awards varies.
