Selection Process

Once a student's scholarship application is received by the Chapter, the Chapter Board of Officers, serving as the Chapter Scholarship Committee, will review all applications and select a candidate for the Chapter's student scholarship winner. Accordingly, the Chapter Board of Officers will then select the next most eligible student to receive the Chapter's student scholarship of $1,500.

If that candidate wins a scholarship award (one scholarship award per student for their entire university study years), they are ineligible for the Chapter's student scholarship award for that year. However, they may apply for the Chapter’s student scholarship program in a subsequent year (again, one scholarship award per student during their entire university study years).
