The Exec. Committee was on a conference call Friday afternoon and apparently there has been some confusion and discomfort with the changes to the scholarship application process in some areas. I have not been contacted about any problems in the SEA. But to make sure we don’t have members that could not make the deadline. Please get this out as soon as you can. To allow anyone that missed the deadline to go ahead and apply.
Please note that for THIS YEAR ONLY, deadlines for submission of scholarship applications and DSA Award nominations have been extended to the following:
There are new scholarships available…
The Traditional and both Continuing scholarships will pay at the Area and National levels. The other two will pay at the National level only.
The below link contains the new scholarship application forms as well as an updated handbook. It has detailed information about each scholarship.
The DSA nomination guidelines and the Scholarship applications are all together on the Forms & Downloads page under Awards & Scholarships.
Please note that the deadlines for submission are January 1 to State Chairpersons, then February 1 to Area Chairpersons. Area winners will be submitted to Micki Crider for national judging by March 1. Micki will notify the Executive Committee of the national winners by April 1.
Please take time to read through the handbook and applications prior to sending out information to your state. Let us know if you have questions.
