Who They Are Looking For
The Selection Committee’s overriding interest is the applicant’s record of academic excellence, leadership, and community service. They look for persuasive, documented evidence of achievement in these three areas, and all three fields are equally important criteria for the Mitchell Scholarship. The Committee also looks at personal characteristics of honesty, integrity, fairness, and unselfish service to others, which indicate a potential for future leadership and contribution to society.
