Each local chapter designs their individual scholarship program. Scholarship applications are sent to the high school guidance departments in early Spring with deadline dates that allow scholarship committees to participate in the awards programs to present the scholarship. Students are judged on grade point average, SAT/ACT scores, academics merit, leadership, financial need and community service.
Each year at the Annual Convention, a National scholarship is presented. The recipient is from the local area where the convention is held and selected by the host chapter. The host chapter of the Convention has the full authority in selecting the student recipients. In order for a student to be eligible for the scholarship, he/she must have been accepted and have proof of enrollment in a two- or four-year college/university or certified vocational program.
