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 RGSA. Scholarships will be granted on the condition that funds will be withheld until such time as the recipient provides RGSA with proof of attendance at the post secondary education institution approved by the Scholarship Committee.
