To the best of my knowledge, I have provided Kendall College Trust (KCT) with accurate information concerning all questions on this application. I hereby agree to report to the KCT any changes which could affect consideration of my application. I understand and agree that my academic and financial records will be shared between my academic institution and the Kendall College Trust and its affiliates. I understand that all decisions of the Scholarship Committee and the Board of KCT are final. I understand that if I am awarded a scholarship, certain requirements (including, but not limited to the following) must be met and maintained before any award monies can be disbursed. If awarded, I agree to make two presentations per year, volunteer at a minimum of three Trust events per year, write one blog post per quarter, and maintain full-time status and a cumulative 3.0 GPA. I understand that awards will be payable and mailed directly to my academic institution at the beginning of the Summer or Fall 2021 term (pending the above requirements), and that all awards will be disbursed in four equal installments pending verification of student eligibility. I understand this scholarship applies to students attending the specified accredited culinary arts and/or hospitality program. Should I transfer, it is at the discretion of the KCT to continue award distribution for tuition at a new institution. Furthermore, if I become a scholarship recipient, I agree to have my picture and information released to promote KCT and all affiliated activities of the Trust.
