The principal criterion for the scholarships is need for financial assistance in meeting college expenses, but consideration will also be given to high school academic record, school activities, community activities, academic honors and awards, quality of a written essay, and likelihood of success in college.

The occupational education award offers $500 for a graduating student who has completed an occupational education program in preparation for gainful employment.

Selection will be based on demonstrated skill in the chosen field of work and demonstrated leadership.
