Scholarship awards are paid directly to your university for credit to your account for tuition, fees and other college-related expenses. If an applicant chooses to accept part of the assistance in the form of digital equipment, SDXDC Scholarship Committee members will help the student identify the equipment necessary for school, order it and deliver it to the student. The amount not spent on digital gear will be forwarded to the student’s university account.
Whether to accept equipment in lieu of financial assistance will be entirely up to the student.
