Apply for Aid
The Foundation grants scholarships to promising students who lack sufficient means to pursue their education.  The most challenging and time consuming task has been to identify those outstanding candidates most worthy of support.

To be considered, each candidate first prepares a detailed application* describing his or her background, goals, academic achievements, and financial needs.  Qualified applicants are next invited for an in-depth, face-to-face interview with the Foundation's Board of Directors, whose members make the final selections.

Foundation Directors meet with recipients at least annually, providing further support to students whose performance merits it.  Directors mentor students when possible, and continue to interact with them throughout their academic years and beyond.

*See Scholarship Application link for application form, requirements and instructions.
