To qualify for the scholarship, a student must have applied and been admitted to either the Drury Alternative Track to Special Education program or the Masters in Education Special Education program. Additional consideration will be provided to applicants who are single mothers.

To receive the scholarship, a student must:

  • be enrolled as a full-time graduate student
  • have a minimum overall undergraduate GPA of 3.0

Klova Campbell was a single mother whose interest was special education. She received her M.Ed. from Drury in 1974. James Campbell established the scholarship in 2009 after Klova’s death. He funded the scholarship by purchasing and refurbishing classic cars and selling them. James’s stepson, William Davis, currently contributes to the scholarship fund. He is an Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Washington State University.
