Scholarship Application Tips



Awards Committees






Conflict of Interest Policy for Awards Committees

Members of scholarship and award committees shall not review an application if the member may have, or be perceived to have, a bias or motive for or against the applicant (e.g., working or personal relationship with applicant). Upon receipt of applications to be reviewed, the committee member who is conflict shall declare the conflict to the Graduate Awards Officers and refrain from reviewing the application file. The member will assume a non-voting role on the funding decision for that applicant. Selection committee members will speak only to the information contained in the award application package, and not based on knowledge of the applicant external to the contents of the application. Members in conflict will declare such conflict where the applicant’s file is discussed during the committee meeting and refrain from speaking to, or voting on, the application.
