All prospective first year freshmen will be considered for this prestigious scholarship. To be considered, students must complete the admission application process and have been offered admission to Hood College no later than January 15.

All candidates will be invited to attend Scholars Day, to be held on February 11, 2017. At that time, candidates will participate in a scholarship interview, meet with faculty and current honors students and lunch with the president and provost. Campus tours will also be offered.

The scholarship recipients will be named no later than two weeks following Scholars Day. The College intends to award four Chair of the Board Scholarships for the Fall 2017.

The scholarship is renewable annually, for up to four years, as long as the student is making satisfactory progress towards a bachelor degree and maintains a 3.5 GPA.
