The amount of the 2013 award has been calculated! The maximum award is $600 and the minimum award is $150.
To find out who gets the maximum or minimum award,
we use the following calculation:
Tuition - Financial Aid Related Grants = x
If x = 0 (in other words, if a student's full tuition is already covered by financial aid related grants), then the student still gets the minimum award of $150.
If x > 0 (or if a student's full tuition is not covered by financial aid related grants), then that student gets the difference up to the maximum award of $600.
We will contact all scholarship recipients by email with further details regarding the amount they received.
