The UF Delta Chapter of Tau Sigma will be begin accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Tau Sigma National Honor Society Scholarship.

All application materials must submitted as a MS Word Document (see attached) via e-mail to Robert Kwong (rkwong@advising.ufl.edu). Any submissions received in the inbox past 11:59 pm (EST) will not be accepted. A committee will evaluate all entries and select two applicants that best represents the Delta Chapter to be nominated for the National Scholarship. The selected applicants will then be reviewed by the National Committee to award the scholarships to the Chapter members that best represents Tau Sigma. The scholarships will be announced by December 20, 2019 and awarded by mid-January 2020.

Only applicants currently enrolled as an undergraduate in a college or university for at least one academic term (includes Summer) during the calendar year 2019 will be considered. Students who have already graduated are not eligible to apply. If you have already graduated, you may send an e-mail to tausigma@advising.ufl.edu and your name will be removed from the e-mail contact list. The applicant’s future enrollment does not have to be at their current institution and can be at either the undergraduate or graduate level.

Previous Tau Sigma scholarship winners are not eligible.

The National Scholarship Review Committee will evaluate the applicants based on their:
Involvement in and service to the chapter
Involvement in and service to the university
Service to the community
Academic achievement

While the National Scholarship Review Committee does not dictate the specific weight that each of the above criteria will carry, involvement in and service to the chapter and university will be weighed more heavily than the other criteria. Please feel free to contact me at rkwong@advising.ufl.edu if there are any questions.
