Once you complete your online application and the deadline has passed, your application is sent to the scholarship review committee who will review your application. Once all applications have been reviewed (late June) we will begin selecting finalists and notifying them in early July to submit their supporting documents (official transcripts, enrollment form and letter of recommendations). Once all documents are submitted and reviewed recipients will be selected and notified in August.
