The Chapter Board will convene a Scholarship Panel composed of AUSA members in good standing who will review all applications and recommend primary and alternate scholarship recipients.  All applicants are evaluated based upon demonstrated leadership qualities, academic qualifications and demonstrated potential.  The goal is to select well-rounded students who combine academic excellence with leadership abilities that show high potential to serve as future civic or military leaders.

The CB&CV Chapter Board of Directors will approve all awards.  The Board typically authorizes one top prize $1000 scholarship plus additional scholarships of lesser value based upon panel recommendations.  For 2016, six students received awards that ranged from $250 to $1000 each including two top awards of $1000.

Thank you & Good Luck!
