$5,000 annually, renewable for three additional consecutive years if the recipient maintains full-time enrollment and a cumulative college grade point average of 2.5 or higher as verified by the year-end academic grade transcript. The recipient must request an official grade transcript from the college's registrar and forward it to the Foundation by July 1 each year. Scholarships will be applied to the cost of undergraduate tuition, fees, room and board, and other college expenses.

Separate checks will be issued for fall and spring semesters. Check processing requires approximately two weeks.
