Candidate Selection

Applications will be reviewed by R.G.S.A.’s Scholarship Committee, and if necessary, outside independent adjudication will be sought. Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of academic standing, their contribution to R.G.S.A. softball, good citizenship, character, and leadership. In selecting successful candidates, the Scholarship Committee will give additional consideration to a candidate who has demonstrated support of the Richmond Girls Softball Association by worthwhile contributions and/or administration of the game of softball.

The Scholarship Committee will not enter into any correspondence with the Scholarship applicant.

The decision of the Scholarship Committee is final.

Successful candidates will be announced at the September Annual General Meeting of the RGSA.
