The scholarships will be awarded by lottery the same day to any Guild member or his/her spouse or partner, children, parents, grandparent or grandchild, or other member of the nominating Guild member’s immediate household. In the event of a change in status, the relationship at the time of the drawing will prevail.
The wild card scholarship allows a member to apply for a relative, a friend or a co-worker.
Scholarship candidates must be Guild members in good standing, or sponsored by a member in good standing. Members may sponsor only one candidate. Prior winners cannot reapply.
If an individual is sponsored more than once, his/her name will be placed in the lottery only once. The name of each candidate’s sponsors will be listed on the lottery ticket.
Scholarship candidates must be enrolled full‑timeor part-time in an accredited degree or certification program in an accredited, post‑secondary educational institution for the 2015-2016 academic year.
All winning candidates must provide proof of enrollment, such as a copy of a paid receipt for a current tuition bill before scholarship monies will be remitted. (For students on a multiple payment plan, proof of the initial payment is sufficient).
In the event a non-qualifying candidate is selected, the Guild member making the nomination will be given the opportunity to substitute the name of an individual who does qualify. If a qualified candidate cannot be substituted there will be a new drawing from the remaining nominations.
