Selection of Recipient
The Selection Committee will select the applicants who show the most promise in their chosen field of study the basis of their essays, letters of recommendation, and supporting materials included with the application.

Financial need does not play a role in determining the award winner.


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. The award will be presented at the Senior Awards Night.

Funds will be disbursed directly to the school in August or September 2021 for the Fall semester. It will be the student’s responsibility to submit to the Foundation at that time proof of enrollment, which includes their student ID#.
