Help change a student's life - become a Scholarship Volunteer

Posted

NCW - Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity that will change the lives of students in our region? Become a Scholarship Review Volunteer.

The Community Foundation of NCW has over 130 scholarships, each with its unique set of criteria, to financially support students entering college, university, and trade schools.

Each scholarship has a review committee that reads each application and together determines the final recipient. Some scholarship committees include the donor and/or their family, but by law they may not make up more than half of the committee.

We are always in need of volunteers who are willing to spend the time and thoughtful care on determining award recipients.

The commitment:

Must be available between March 5 - April 5, or June 5 - June 25 to review and score scholarship applications (anywhere from 10-150, depending on the scholarship) as part of a committee.

Must be willing to read and score applications through our online system (there will be training). This will allow you to review the scholarships from the comfort of your own home at your own pace.

Must sign Confidentiality and Conflict of Interest Forms.

For questions, contact Julie Mott at julie@cfncw.org or 509-663-7716.
