Stuttgart Community Spouses' Club (SCSC) scholarships are made possible through SCSC sponsored activities, such as the Thrift Shop and the Annual Spring Bazaar, in which volunteers from the club and the community devote numerous volunteer working hours. The Scholarship Committee reviews submissions and determines applicant eligibility and selection criteria. The selection criterion includes academic achievement, personal essay, community service, community leadership, letters of reference, and work experience. Financial need is not factored into award consideration.
The Scholarship Selection Panel is an independent panel of judges comprised of volunteer military and civilian members of the Stuttgart Community. Judges are screened for potential conflict of interest and their dependents are not eligible to apply for a scholarship. Student identity is maintained as anonymous throughout the judging and award determination process.
No member of the SCSC Governing Board is involved in the independent-judging process. The Scholarship Committee will determine the number of scholarships and the monetary value of each scholarship to be awarded based on available funds. The Scholarship Selection Panel will determine the award winners through an analysis of scores. Submission of an application does not guarantee receipt of a scholarship.
