Persistence Pays Off

The scholarship information listed here changes from time-to-time. The contact person changes; phone numbers change; scholarship committee members change… Sometimes it takes some doing to find the right person to advise you on a particular scholarship. It can be frustrating, but it’s not intentional. Just be persistent until you find the right person and get the correct information. We are here to help you, but sometimes, when it comes to administering scholarships, it can get a little chaotic.
