for consideration

    1. Scholarship Funding does NOT go directly to an individual.  Scholarship checks will be payable to the Institution of Higher Education with the student ID # in memo.
    2. Scholarships offered are limited, one-time, non-renewable grants that are paid directly to the educational institution and applied only to the tuition of a student who is enrolled and in good standing.
    3. To assure proper supervision of awards, scholarship checks are made payable directly to the institution of higher education during the first week of July.
    4. Scholarship grant funds are to be applied to the student’s tuition for the upcoming semester/school-year and cannot be used to pay an outstanding balance due from a prior semester/school year.
    5. The educational institution is informed that, in the event the student withdraws from the institution’s educational program at such time that a refund of tuition is due, scholarship grant funds are to be returned to the Foundation and not to the withdrawing student.
