Decisions are made by the people that show up.
Scholarship money is awarded to the people that apply.
I applied, and they gave me a chunk of money!! (by the way, if you want to find out how to fold a dollar so it looks like the picture go here)
Whoo hoo! I’ve essentially got 2 months rent cut off my bill, and that’s not chicken feed.
It’s a funny thing to apply for scholarship money… you have to write a statement telling them why you deserve it. In my case that means that I have to ask myself why I deserve it. What it came down to for me is recognizing that helping to restore boats and promoting restoration in the greater community is in fact a valuable thing to the larger community, not just to my wallet. Apparently the people with the checkbook agreed.
