    Selection Process

    The PMI Utah Northern Chapter Scholarship committee will judge the YouTube video submissions to determine three finalists. If you are selected as a finalist, you will need to submit an official transcript from the school you currently attend.

    The students chosen as finalists will give a 10-15 minute lunch presentation, including Q&A, on their project at the Professional Development Conference on April 25th 2018. A weighted average vote between the Scholarship Committee and Audience members will determine one grand prize winner who will be awarded $2,000. Second place will be awarded $1,000 and third place will be awarded $500. The winners will be announced on MONTH DAY during lunch. In addition to the scholarship, finalists will also be able to attend the Professional Development Conference and bring one guest free of charge. The reward will be administered by The PMI Education Foundation.
