SELECTION PROCESS:
The MIS department will validate information regarding applicant GPA to protect student privacy. In order to have an unbiased selection of a recipient, the Chair of the Scholarship Program (not in the selection group), will remove all identity-revealing information from the candidates applications. The scholarship recipients will be screened by a small committee (5) of AIS eboard members overseen by a faculty advisor and final selections will be conducted by a panel consisting of faculty and current and future AIS Presidents and Vice Presidents. The final decision for scholarship recipients will be announced at the Spring 2019 IT Awards.
