Terms & Conditions
The USBC Awards Committee will be under no obligation to award scholarships in any given year, and shall not be obligated to furnish reasons for its decision to award any given applicant.
A scholarship may be suspended or terminated at any time, either at the recipient's request or if in the opinion of the USBC Awards Committee or Board of Directors:
the recipient's performance is unsatisfactory; OR
the recipient fails to observe the conditions of the scholarship; OR
the recipient fails to attend the conference.
Recipients that are unable to attend the conference for which scholarship funding has been successfully awarded will notify the USBC Office in writing of this fact.
