As mentioned on the initial scholarship page, we typically require an awardee to pay the deposit, or possibly more. If your case requires a full waiver of the deposit, this may be possible but the applicant should be aware that for this to occur, substantial justification will be needed. Please indicate these needs in the large box provided for you explain why you desire the scholarship.

*  IMPORTANT – If the deposit is not waived, the awardee is required to register and pay the deposit within 10 days of being notified of an award, or the awarded benefits will be forfeited. – or – If the deposit is waived, the awardee must register for the event within 10 days of being notified of the scholarship, or the scholarship will be forfeited.

*  No travel expenses will be paid for any scholarship. The applicant is responsible for their own transport to and from the event.

*  In evaluating who will receive a scholarship, all other needs being equal, the Scholarship Subcommittee will give priority to those applicants who have not received scholarship assistance within the last 2 years.
