Selection of Recipients
A holistic review of all completed applications is conducted by a committee of Dunwoody College faculty and staff. Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of demonstrated need and anticipated success in the program. Work experience, goals and aspirations, challenging personal or family circumstances, strength of letters of reference, and the scholarship interview will also be considered. Recipients will be selected from a pool of qualified applicants with consideration given to those who demonstrate the greatest financial need.
Not all applicants to the program will be guaranteed acceptance.
If selected as a recipient, you will receive up to a $10,000 scholarship award per year in financial aid assistance. Awards are renewable up to two years or until a degree is earned, whichever occurs first, as long as you maintain scholarship eligibility.
