Spring 2014: Serve on the Standing Scholarship Committee
by Michelle Saport |
The Office of Student Financial Assistance is calling for volunteers to serve on the UAA Standing Scholarship Committee (SSC). Serving in this capacity allows you to reaffirm your commitment to student success in a rewarding and creative way. Few committee members walk away without being touched by the myriad experiences our students live. Reading scholarship essays will remind you of just what a diverse, capable and deserving student population claims UAA, and you cannot avoid being motivated by their efforts. Allow yourself this opportunity to make our students' achievements vicariously yours and sign up to serve on the Standing Scholarship Committee website.
As a member of the SSC, you will be tasked to read and score between 50 and 200 essays submitted by scholarship applicants over a five-week time period. A general rubric will be provided to assist in assigning objective essay scores in five categories: extracurricular involvement, goals and plans, presentation (grammar and spelling), other/special considerations and UA community involvement. SSC members must return scores by Wednesday, April 2.
