Students complete applications. Students’ applications and/or essays are graded on several criteria by multiple reviewers. Students who pass the initial screening are interviewed by a panel of several community members. The scholarship committee recommends scholarship recipients to the board, who vote on them. Thus, there are several individuals involved in the process to ensure fairness to the applicants.
Scholarship checks are sent directly to the bursar at the college or university.
In order to receive continued funding, students must provide Out For Education with a copy of their transcripts each semester to ensure they are completing coursework with appropriate grades.
For example a one-year, $1,000 scholarship is divided between two semesters. The student must show academic progress and continued enrollment in order to receive funding for the second semester.
