Dr. Shane Hunt, dean of the Arkansas State University College of Business, and Dr. John Mello, professor of supply chain management at ASU, said this week they have funded the Hunt-Mello Textbook Scholarship for business students at the university.

The two faculty members have donated portions of sales across the country and throughout the world of a textbook the pair co-authored in 2014 titled, “Marketing.”

The book was written to demonstrate to students around the world the connection between marketing and their future careers, whether students choose to pursue a major in marketing or another field. The textbook was adopted by colleges and universities across the country, and includes an interactive tablet-based edition.

Hunt said the endowed scholarships will be awarded to multiple scholarship winners each year in the College of Business. The requirements for the scholarship are the recipients must have a major in the College of Business, a minimum 2.75 grade point average and must have completed a minimum of 75 hours toward a degree. Financial need is also a consideration.
