ACTIVE PARTICIPATION IN LICENSING INTERNATIONAL
Scholarship recipients automatically receive a complimentary one-year membership in Licensing International – and are viewed as the organization’s ambassadors. Participation can take many forms including, but not limited to, committee membership, writing articles for various publications, serving as event volunteers, bringing nonmember friends to events, and spreading the word about our events and recruiting new members on campus and among friends.

CHANGE OF STATUS
Recipients are required to notify the Licensing International Scholarship Committee in writing of any changes of school or home address and other contact information, enrollment status, or other relevant information.

INTERRUPTION OF STUDIES
A recipient may request that the award be held if the student’s studies are interrupted by prolonged illness, an accident or other extenuating circumstances (to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis). Any such interruption must be documented in writing and reported promptly to the Licensing International Scholarship Committee for approval. It is the student’s responsibility to notify these same individuals of intent to resume study so that arrangements can be made for reinstatement of the award. If the interruption is medical, it must be documented in writing by a physician.

Renewal is not automatic. Past recipients are eligible to reapply but cannot receive the same named scholarship more than once or more than two scholarships total through Licensing International.

PHOTO RELEASE
Recipients must authorize Licensing International to use photographs of them and an approved bio in promotional materials, including web materials. 

Selection Process

Recipients are chosen by the Licensing International Scholarship Committee on the basis of academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, participation in school and community-service activities, honors and other awards or recognition, work experience, and statement of goals and aspirations. Need and unusual personal and/or family circumstances are also considered.  The process is very rigorous.  Students will be required to fill out an application (with an essay and other material). Top candidates will be interviewed.
