In an effort to ensure the progress of scholarship recipients and encourage completion of the postsecondary program, each scholarship award is divided over the number of years required for graduation. (i.e. a $2,500 scholarship for a college freshman will be distributed in four equal installments of $625 a year). Students continue to receive annual disbursements as long as they maintain good academic standing. CHCI manages the disbursement of the scholarships; an annual check is sent directly to recipients.
