Selection Process and Criteria

A committee of CASE District I volunteers selects recipients on the basis of:

  2. the candidate’s ability to express him/herself as outlined in the personal essay; and
  3. the candidate’s statement about the resources available for professional development at his/her institution. Preference is given to people from institutions with limited resources.

Weight will be given to qualified candidates who possess characteristics that are underrepresented in the profession and who would contribute to the overall diversity of CASE District I.
