Adjudication Criteria

VKCSF Scholarships are awarded based on the following criteria, weighted equally:

  • excellence in academic or vocational training achievements; and
  • active involvement in community and/or other notable non-academic pursuits.

In addition, where financial assistance is required in order for the applicant to be able to pursue education, the applicant may, at the applicant’s option, submit information as to financial need. In such cases, the above two criteria and financial need will be given equal weight of 1/3 each.
