Recruiting Organization: Central Scholarship

Why do we need scholarship committee volunteers?

If awarding scholarships were based merely on financial need or academic merit - or a combination of the two - there would be no need for volunteers or committees. Computers can rank candidates by who is the neediest or who has the best grades, but they cannot measure heart, drive, desire, or talent - the characteristics that allow individuals to overcome hardships in life to become successful contributors to society.

This is why we need you.
