Question Title

* 8. Volunteer scholarship reviewers are required to agree to and abide by our Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality Policy.

Please indicate your acceptance of and adherence to the Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality Policy by selecting 'I agree' and typing your name and today's date.

A conflict of interest occurs when the action of a committee member recommending an award may result in direct benefit to a person closely related to the committee member. A conflict of interest may also occur if a committee member exerts influence to select a recipient without considering objective criteria for the scholarship. It is the Foundation's policy to deal with conflicts of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest in as open and appropriate a way as possible.

Scholarship or Award Selection Committee members must be able to make independent decisions without potential or perceived influence caused by a conflict of interest. They must evaluate the eligibility of all applicants without bias and make selection recommendations based on the established objective criteria for the scholarship or award. Committee members shall avoid any situation where personal or business relationships could have, or give the appearance of having, undue influence on the matters under consideration. In case of a potential conflict of interest, the member shall declare the conflict or relationship to the other committee members and refrain from influencing the discussion or decision making process.

Further, committee members may become aware of information regarding scholarship applicants and their families such as household income, grade point average, physical or learning disabilities that should be kept confidential. The committee members may need to take such information into account in selecting students for an award, but the information regarding individual students should not be shared or discussed outside of the selection committee setting.

Next Steps

Committee assignments cannot be made until we receive the bulk of applications; therefore, you may not hear from us until closer to the start of your chosen review period(s). Once you have been added to a review committee, you will receive a notification and additional instructions.

In the meantime, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for volunteering your time! We greatly appreciate your assistance.
