Scholarship Selection Committee Members – How to Get Started

Thank you for volunteering to serve on a Dayton Foundation scholarship advisory committee. As a committee member, you will evaluate the applications and recommend awarding the scholarship funds in the way that best fulfills the original donor’s charitable wishes. Although all scholarship funds have specific criteria, awarding scholarships also requires judgment in assessing the character, motivation and potential of the applicants.
