Disbursement of scholarship funds is dependent upon verification of financial, academic and other qualifying criteria. This process lengthens the entire scholarship application process.

Once applications are submitted at the end of January, the applications are processed then submitted to a scholarship review committee in March.

All applications are thouroughly reviewed before making decisions. This process can take up to a month or more (depending on the quantity of applicants - in past years, over 200 people have applied for scholarships).

Towards the end of April, all applicants will be notified with a letter whether they receive a scholarship or not.
