The Process

We have tried to come up with a fair and reasonable selection process.  In order to keep everything fair and balanced.  Applications are received with supporting documentation scanned into our database.  Then the information is shared with selection committee members. We use a diverse group of committee members .  In previous years the committee consisted of teachers, military personnel, computer science professionals, nurses, bankers and many diverse professionals.  Each committee member ranks the applicants and a total  score based on the committee rankings is completed.  Using this score and the amount of scholarship money available in that year we distribute the scholarships based on those scores.  Every document received is considered.  Essays typically bear the most weight in the scoring.   Good Luck
