Finalists will be notified of the time, date and place for interviews during the week of the MBS and MGS program.

The recipients must meet the scholarship criteria set forth by the scholarship committee as communicated at the time of the award. Should the awardee fail to maintain academic performance during the scholarship term, the remaining scholarship funds will be available to the first runner-up and then second runner-up.
