$1,000 to $5,000 annually, renewable for three additional years. The award amount is based on the financial need of the recipient.
Generally, three to five awards are offered annually. Last year, there were eight awards given.
Selection of recipients is not based on financial need. After the scholarship recipients are selected, the amount of each award is determined solely on the basis of financial need. The Selection Committee will select the applicants who show the most promise as innovative, creative problem solvers, on the basis of their essays, letters of recommendation, and other information included with the application. Academic and extracurricular information play an important secondary role in helping the committee get a fuller picture of the applicant, but these are not the basis on which the scholarship is awarded. The Selection Committee reserves the right to decide, on a case-by-case basis, to contact applicants for phone interviews or to request additional materials. Applicants will be notified by mail whether or not they have been awarded a scholarship.
