How Scholarship Awards are Determined

The Tuition Scholarships and CSCMP Edge Conference Student Assistant award will be awarded based on essay quality, letter of recommendation, academic record, and resume. The essays are judged on the elements of content, grammar, and presentation. Each applicant will be given fair and careful consideration. An official transcript may be requested by the CSCMP Puget Sound Roundtable at its discretion. The award recipients will be selected without regard to race, sex, religion, or national origin. The decision of the board of directors of the CSCMP Puget Sound Roundtable is final.

Recipients will be announced in mid-spring each year.
