Annual Award

Since this scholarship is specifically designed to recognize demonstrated achievements in as many of the specific areas in which Kevin participated and excelled, financial need is not a factor in the selection process. The Fund reserves the right not to make an award in any year if the qualifications of the applicants are judged not to be consistent with the purpose and intent of this scholarship award. In the event no award is made in a given year, the amount which would have been awarded, will be used to supplement the level of future scholarship awards over the following four years.
