The DESD Scholarship Committee performs a critical function each year to scrutinize and determine the most deserving winners of both the Graduate and Undergraduate Scholarship Awards; the trend has been a steady and impressive improvement in both the number and quality of applicants trending upward since 2012.
The goal of the DESD Scholarship Committee is to ensure thorough focus on worthy applicants who best demonstrate an optimal combination of high standards in the areas of academic, leadership and personal values and who also assert a stated interest in the professional arena represented by the DESD charter.
Members of the Committee since 2012 have included Rand Ridgeway, Erhard Koehler, Mark Campagna ( Chair) and recently added new member ( in 2015) Eduardo Farfan. We also appreciate the able and strong guidance of Ms. Natalie Jones from ANS – HQ.
