Heltzer Scholarship

The Heltzer Scholarship covers approximately 75% of in-state tuition and is renewable annually for 4 years/8 consecutive semesters (fall and spring only). It is intended for students who demonstrate financial need.

The scholarship was established in memory of Elizabeth “Jerri” Kent Heltzer and Harry Heltzer, longtime friends of the university, through a generous bequest from the Heltzer estate. Awarded to four students each year.
