Recipients are expected to participate in the program and complete their presentation within the time frame listed on their scholarship application. Any change requires scholarship committee approval or reapplication. Students who do not participate in or complete the program and or their presentation may not be entitled to the award. If the award has already been disbursed, the student may be required to return the full amount if they do not participate in or complete the presentation.
