Scholarship Committee Chair

Scholarship Chair

Time Commitment of approximately 8 hours/month during the 5 month execution period.

Participation will primarily be in-person, with some business conducted virtually over email.

We are seeking 1 leader for this role.

This leader may have experience in finance, higher education, management, or simply an interest in learning and leading for this role.

Our organization is very excited to begin a college scholarship program to support our newest alumni as they embark on the next stages of their education. We have a committee of five members who are looking for a leader to help guide this process. This inaugural year will require a fair amount of research and planning, and should be the foundation of a program we can build for many years to come.

Meetings can take the form of in person or virtual/email depending upon the needs of those participating.
Meetings may need to take place more frequently than listed, up to the discretion of the Committee.
