Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of academic performance, employment experience, financial need, letters of recommendation, and a demonstrated desire to pursue higher education. All applicants will be notified in writing and the award will be mailed to the specified school.  Should candidates rank equally in the judgement of the selection committee, the level of financial need will be considered the final criteria.
