The Foundation’s Selection Committee, which is composed of university professors, non-profit organization leaders and community members with years of experience in the academic and non-profit sectors, review and score applications from April 17th to June 30th.
Applicant finalists with the highest score are scheduled for web-based video interviews during the month of July. Final selections are made and all applicants are notified during the last week of July.
Scholarships will be up to $15,000 and will be awarded by August 15th. Scholarship amounts will be determined at the sole discretion of the Selection Committee. With certain exceptions, funding will be paid directly to the applicant’s university. Exceptions can be made if the award adversely impacts the applicant’s financial aid status.
Foundation scholarship recipients are encouraged to give back to their communities and volunteer with organizations that offer services related to their field of discipline. Since internships are essential to bridging the gaps between the academic and professional world, our foundation may also be able to assist you in providing internship opportunities.
