1. The Candidate must be enrolled in an accredited School, College or University and classified as a second, third, fourth or fifth year student, in good standing, for the upcoming fall semester. Freshman and Graduate students are not eligible. Applicants are eligible for full scholarships only if enrolled and attending twelve (12) or more credit hours per semester. An accredited School is defined as an Institution whose credit hours are recognized by a College or University as transferable towards earning a degree.

A membership year runs from August 1st through April 30th annually, unless directed otherwise by the Board of Directors. A sponsor should begin attending meetings in August and ensure that his\her name is documented in the Record of Attendance Book for a high school senior who will graduate in the spring semester. The Sponsored student would then be eligible to apply during his or her freshman year for a scholarship for his or her sophomore year. The attendance roll book is documented each month during the meetings when the attendee pays for his\her meal at the sign-in desk. (Also, participation in the annual fundraising golf tournament is heavily encouraged.)
