Nominations for the Scholarship are accepted in the late fall through the end of January and are vetted by a student committee organized under the Office of the Dean of Students. The student committee recommends a list of finalists to the Dean and the Scholarship Committee. 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 at the Rotunda, followed by Saturday morning interviews with the Scholarship Committee. The selection weekend is typically in late March or early April. Following the selection weekend, the winner is notified and honored later that spring at the Alumni Association Awards Luncheon.
