Selection Criteria:
The recipient must be a current member of the Minnesota Chapter. Since the purpose of the scholarship is to promote active membership in the chapter, the main criteria for judging candidates will be a short statement on how receiving the scholarship will help you to be more involved in ASIS on a local or national level. Other factors which will receive less weight are whether the candidate is currently a student, an ASIS member for 5 years or less, or has never attended an ASIS annual meeting. Whether your employer is willing to fund a trip will also be noted.
