Description: After the college admissions scandals of 2019, character as a selection criteria has become even more important for all providers. Additionally, it's critically important to ensure your recruiting and selecting practices are leading to a scholar population that is representative of the larger populations you hope to serve.

Four merit-based providers will dive into their scholarship selection processes, showcasing how they search for the top students, from all backgrounds, who demonstrate high moral character.

The panel will tackle the following questions:

  • How do we define merit in order to evaluate students’ accomplishments in context (resources available, stability of environment, parents education level, etc.) and personal characteristics (integrity and concern for others)? We will discuss how your definition of merit will allow reviewers to evaluate these criteria as part of selection and how it will impact your program's diversity.
  • How, as a primarily merit-based provider, do you ensure you scholar population is representative of the larger population you serve? This will include discussions of both recruitment and selection strategies.
  • When selecting your scholars, how do you build in character as a selection criteria and what tactics do you use to evaluate this criteria?

Next Steps: When you complete your purchase, you will receive a link to the recording along with the PDF of the PowerPoint presentation.
