C.C. Wheeler Scholarship

C.C. Wheeler Scholarship

Every year, one freshman is named the "C.C. Wheeler Scholar" and receives a scholarship of $4,000. The award is renewable for up to four years as long as the student maintains a minimum GPA of 3.00. Only students who have applied by January 26, 2015 to Bradley University's Department of Family and Consumer Sciences and have completed and returned the C.C. Wheeler Scholarship application receive full consideration for the program. Please visit the admissions page for more information about freshman admissions and scholarships.

The C.C. Wheeler Scholar is expected to be involved in a service or research project through the C.C.Wheeler Institute and will also have opportunity to present their scholarly work in a forum similar to the Mildred Arnold Scholar.

All scholars have the privilege of monthly meetings with their faculty mentor and other scholars. Current research projects by junior and senior scholars are discussed. Freshman and sophomore scholars have time to develop research ideas with faculty and upper class scholars during this period of time. This project will result in a scholarly paper to be presented to a peer-reviewed journal or national forum no later than during his/her final semester at Bradley.

Merit-cum-Means Scholarship

Merit-cum-Means Scholarship

Scholarships would be offered to the five students with the highest All India Ranks in AIEEE who take admission in the program, subject to a means test. In order to be eligible for this category of scholarship, the annual income of the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) should not exceed Rs. 250,000/- per annum. Awardees would be required to submit suitable documents in proof of the above every year.Rules for Merit-cum-Means Scholarship: The scholarship would be continued on a semester-wise basis for a maximum of eight semesters (normal duration of the program) provided that the student satisfies the conditions given below. The Summer Semester is not covered in the scheme; hence a student who does not satisfy a particular condition in the Winter Semester of a particular academic year would not be eligible for the scholarship in the Autumn Semester of the succeeding academic year.


Means Test:  The student should satisfy the means test in every academic year on the basis of the annual income in the preceding financial year.

Minimum SPI: The SPI (Semester Performance Index) obtained by the student should be 6.50/10.00 or above in every semester. If the SPI falls below 6.50/10.00 in a particular semester, the scholarship would not be offered in the succeeding semester. However, if the SPI in a semester again is 6.50/10.00 or above, then the scholarship would be restored from the succeeding semester.

Pass in all Courses: The student should not obtain a grade other than a passing grade in all the courses taken in a semester, i.e. the student should have obtained grade of D/DE or above for courses with letter grades, and a grade of P for all courses with P/F grades. If the student gets a non-passing grade (ie F/NP/X) in any course of a semester, then he will not be eligible for the scholarship for one succeeding semester. 

A student who undertakes some courses of a semester at some other institution under the transfer of credits provision will not be eligible for the scholarship for the succeeding semester.

Duration of Study: The student should complete all the degree requirements in the normal duration of study for the program.

Probation or Disciplinary Action: The student should at no time be placed on academic probation or be subjected to any disciplinary action by the Institute. The student should not have been subjected to any action for use of unfair means in any examination, or for plagiarism in any submission. In case this condition is not satisfied, the scholarship would be permanently withdrawn.

Filling Vacancies: In case less than five merit-cum-means scholarships are available for award for any of the batches currently in the program, then fresh applications would be invited up to the total number of such vacancies from students who are not in the first year. The selection criteria and other rules would be the same as stated above. Vacancies may arise for any of the following reasons:

Not enough eligible candidates in a particular batch

A scholarship awardee has become permanently not eligible either by obtaining an F grade in some course or by being placed on academic or disciplinary probation.


Selection of scholarship awardees will be based on the performance in the admission test, viz. AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination).
