Additionally, this is an opportunity for you to speak more to your accomplishments, further clarify responses from your application, and share additional information that will help the interviewer and the Foundation to better understand your background and your future endeavors. 

Selection Process:

 

Once all interviews have been conducted, the Board Members gather to discuss the applicants’ application and interview. From here, we make a final decision on which applicants will be selected as recipients for the scholarships. All individuals are shortly notified of our decision and the next steps to follow.
