Nominations for the Scholarship are accepted in the late fall through the middle of January and are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee. This phase of the process results in a list of semi-finalists for further vetting. The finalists are selected and notified by the first week of March.
In the spring, the finalists attend a Friday evening dinner in their honor, usually held in the Rotunda, followed by Saturday morning interviews with the Scholarship Committee. The selection weekend is typically in late March or early April. Immediately following the selection weekend, the winner is notified and honored later that spring at the Alumni Association Awards Luncheon.
