LAST TWO WEEKS OF JULY: SELECTION

The Selection Committee meets to decide student scholarship awards and funding levels.

FIRST WEEK OF AUGUST: NOTIFICATION

Students are notified of awards. Scholarship recipients must complete the DATA SHEET located on website. Failure to complete and return the data form will result in delay of funding.

AUGUST 1st – 15th: FUNDING

Once we receive your data sheet:

  1. We will fax or email to the school contact person that you give us an agreement stating your scholarship may be used for tuition, books and fees only. According to IRS laws, this agreement must be signed by the school before we can send them your scholarship award.

  2. Once we receive a signed agreement, your scholarship award will be mailed directly to the school. Scholarship awards can be applied to one semester or divided equally between two semesters, whatever you and your school prefer. As long as the award is used within the 2022-2023 school year and is applied only to tuition, books and fees, this is your choice.

  3. We will notify you when we mail it so you can watch your student account for credit.

If we do not receive a signed agreement from your school, it is your responsibility to contact them and ensure this is done so you can receive your award. Checks CANNOT be sent until this signed agreement is received.
