2018-19 3rd District Scholarship Timeline
September 1, 2018 - November 1, 2018 Scholarship Kickoff- Have all Area Supervisors, Chapter Advisors and the Scholarship Committee travel to their respective Undergraduate Chapter. By doing so we can sit down with each undergraduate chapter and explain the importance of the Charles R. Drew Scholarship. Walk them through how to fill out an application, what a reference letter should look like and explain what the district is looking for in the essay part of the application. Also answer any questions the undergraduate brothers may have. The purpose of the kickoff is to familiarize each chapter with this process and to increase participation.
