Application Guidelines

Applications must be received by March 14, 2014; for screening and processing. Each application will be reviewed by the Spokane Regional Plan Center Scholarship Committee. Finalists may be interviewed by the association's Committee.


It is important you be as specific as possible. Please describe all student body and community activities, volunteer participation, and all work experiences--paid or unpaid. Working as a volunteer is just as valuable as working for pay, so make sure you tell us of your role(s) in each activity. For example, listing DECA as an activity does not mean as much as describing your participation in DECA. Lastly, it is important that you state the dates of your employment in each job and level of responsibility.

Please note, late applications will not be considered and incomplete applications may lead to disqualification.
