HOW WE EVALUATE SCHOLARSHIPS
The General Scholarship Committee is comprised of 30 individuals including faculty, staff, administrators, students, and community volunteers. The committee, chaired by the Scholarship Coordinator who is a non-voting member, reviews the application process and establishes policies and procedures for the program.
General Scholarship applications are evaluated on the application form, the criteria and funds available.
Unfortunately, no student is guaranteed a scholarship in this process, as we have many more applicants than scholarships available.
