Each school was permitted to nominate two students in each of the 8 scholarship categories. Following submission of an application and nomination by their school, the students had to engage in personal interviews with scholarship committee panelists. Susan Metzler, Arcadia’s College and Career Coordinator, was in charge of the scholarship selection process for Arcadia.
