As a committee we only had a total of 12 applications, approx. 3 per school.  Due to COVID-19 and the small amount of applications, we decided to forgo the interview and choose the final candidates as a committee by reviewing their applications together. When choosing the final candidates we are reviewing/discussing: academics, community service/volunteerism, financial need and overall application preparedness/write up.  Each student that applied excelled academically, committed to their communities through volunteerism and have great aspirations.  We are  happy to share with the club the following scholarship award recipients are for this year fiscal year:
