Current members of the NWA-NACR Scholarship Committee will review applications on a rolling basis and award funding as such. Beginning in April, applications will be collected every Friday leading up to the event, and awards made the following Mondays until designated funds are exhausted.
Applicants will be evaluated based on the case made in addressing the required questions in their application. Considerations will also be made to provide geographic representation in the awards.
