Information Regarding the NWSC Scholarship

The Northwestern Showmen’s Club scholarship is a competitive scholarship that is issued once a year to a select number of qualifying applicants. Any applicant can apply annually up to four consecutive times. Based on the fluctuation of our budget, the amount of the award will be determined each year and is subject to change from year to year.

THERE HAVE BEEN SOME CHANGES TO THE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION AND PROCESS AS OF 2014.  PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DEADLINE AND OTHER INFORMATION, AND NOTE THAT THE APPLICATION HAS CHANGED AS WELL. PLEASE READ THE APPLICATION CAREFULLY, AS THERE ARE CHANGES IN ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS.

FINANCIAL:

 (Special Note: for school years 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17: It was voted on @ special meeting of Board of Governors meeting on 2/20/2014 to reduce amount to $500 each and limit the number of scholarships to no more than 4 scholarships each year.)

New financial guidelines:

Scholarships will be awarded in increments of $500, with funds available.  Those funds shall be net money raised in the current year, plus any remaining balance in scholarship fund over $5000. 

For example: Raised $4500, balance in account from prior year $5700 plus raised monies for total $10,200.  Therefore, a total of 10 scholarships could be awarded, and the balance of the scholarship account would be $5200.

SCORING:

Scholarship applications will be scored by the scholarship committee, as explained below.

Scholarship committee chairman and each scholarship committee member shall fill out this blind scoring rubric on each applicant at meeting in January. This will give you the total score for each applicant.
