    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)

    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months

    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.
