Despina Meshel Thomas Scholarship


In 2014, Senator Harry Meshel established this scholarship to honor his sister, Despina Meshel Thomas. Despina was an impeccable dresser and constantly in style. She served as a model for proper appearance and demeanor. In tribute to Despina's flawless fashion sense, this scholarship is provided for a female Fashion Merchandising major.

Applicants must be a full time, female student majoring in Fashion Merchandising, have a minimum 2.7 GPA and a completed FAFSA. Need is not a requirement, but may be a consideration. First preference will be given to applicants who reside in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties in Ohio, and matriculate to YSU. Residents from other areas will also be considered if the first preference cannot be met.
