Scholarship Review Volunteers Needed

March 14, 2014

The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Advancement Office, in conjunction with the CWI Foundation, is seeking faculty and staff interested in volunteering time to help review scholarship applications for the 2014-15 academic year. Approximately 3,000 applications are received each year and each application needs to be reviewed and scored by two people.

The review process involves a short video orientation, reading applications (some include essays), and scoring based on a pre-determined scoring rubric. Scoring will take place between March 21-April 14, 2014 and applications can be accessed online.

Employees interested in helping with this effort can contact Anita Tuttle at [email protected] or 208.562.3507 by March 19. Please keep in mind that more volunteers means scholarships can be awarded to deserving students faster.
