Scholarship Considerations

Primary considerations for awards are:

1. CHARACTER. References are required from academic deans or advisors, professors or teachers, employers, and personal associates.

2. ABILITY. Academic transcripts are required and must reflect a minimum GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale.

3. FINANCIAL NEED. Awards are based on demonstrated financial need. The maximum annual award is $9,000. Applicants must submit copies of their and their parents' most recently filed income tax returns (2020). A detailed estimate of academic expenses and resources is required.

Eligible scholars are expected to apply for financial aid from all possible sources including federal, state, college and university funding. The Foundation does not provide funding to cover debts already incurred.

SCHOLARSHIP DECISIONS

Applicants will be notified of the Scholarship Committee's decisions in May. Awards are granted for one year only. However, those scholars who demonstrate their ability and continued financial need may reapply for renewal.
