Meet our 2015 Winners
How Scholarships are Awarded
Scholarship selections are made by an independent committee consisting of diverse business and educational community leaders. Winners are chosen based on academic achievement, demonstration of leadership abilities, and their commitment to community service and activities. High school seniors and college undergraduates that exemplify these traits are encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted every year from February through June, with winners announced in July.
To assure complete impartiality in selection of recipients and to maintain a high level of professionalism, the program is administered by the GTE Foundation Scholarship Committee and a GTE Scholarship Team, respectively. Additionally, an external firm that specializes in managing sponsored scholarship programs helps to collect, organize, and store all applications.
