Delta College’s Foundation Needs Volunteers to Rate Scholarship Applications!

Currently, students are applying for scholarships for the 2013 - 2014 academic year. Students have until February 28 to submit their online application. The Foundation Office needs volunteers to score the students' two essay answers. The raters’ scores determine who will receive a scholarship. The questions students answer are:

  1. What is your career goal and why did you choose that profession? (Write a minimum of 150 words. Do not exceed 250 words.)
  2. Describe a time in your life that altered how you felt about yourself -- either positively or negatively. (Write a minimum of 150 words. Do not exceed 250 words.)

The Foundation Office will provide an optional, one-hour training session at Delta College on Tuesday, February 26 from 2 – 3 pm or Wednesday, February 27 from 11 – 12 pm. If you volunteer, you have from March 11 – April 12 to rate the students' essay answers. Raters read and score the essay answers online, so you can read the essays at your leisure -- at work, at home, or anywhere there’s WiFi. A scoring system is provided to assist with rating student’s answer. It is estimated that you will have 40 applications to review.
