You will submit their email addresses and they will log in to submit the letter on your behalf.
How will my application be judged?
Candidates are judged by a scholarship selection committee appointed by Civitan International. The decisions of the selection committee are FINAL and NOT subject to review. Civitan International has established the following criteria for awarding points when judging the various aspects of the application.

When will I know if I received the scholarship?
The scholarship selection committee will begin reviewing the applications in February and our aim is to have the results sent out in late March/early April.
