GUIDELINES for the 2021/2022 Scholarship Program

Following are the guidelines for the ISA – Houston Section Scholarship Program for the Spring 2021 academic school year, as approved by the Board of Directors. Please note this Scholarship is supplementary funding and is not intended to pay for any student’s full tuition for a full term or full school year. Amount of Scholarship may vary from year to year. ISA Houston Section prefers STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) students to apply.

1. Scholarships are awarded to successful applicants who will attend an accredited technical school, college, or university for Spring 2021 semesters as full-time students (12 credit hours for undergraduate and 9 credit hours for graduate). Note our Scholarship Committee will consider “active student ISA volunteer efforts in lieu of a few credit hours if needed). We need more student ISA volunteers going forward.

2. Applicant must be nominated either by an ISA Student Section Faculty Advisor or an ISA Houston Section member who has attended a minimum of four (4) ISA-Houston Section monthly meetings or activities during the 2010/2021 ISA Houston Section fiscal year.

3. Applicant must submit an essay of no less than 500 words (typed) describing his/her future goals and the contribution that a scholarship would make in achieving those goals.

4. The applicant must submit an official copy of the most recent transcript.

7. If awarded a scholarship, the applicant and one guest of the nominating party will be invited to attend the scholarship award meeting/dinner (location to be announced). ISA Houston Section will pay for dinners of the scholarship recipient and one guest. Virtual may be required and we will advise status.
