For all scholarships granted by the Art Club after 1/1/11 service units will be required. One service unit will be required for each year of scholarship support, or for support of a special event such as attendance of an art camp.
A service unit may be performed after this rule is adopted by a scholar, a prospective scholar, or a parent. A service unit will consist of a service performed for the Art Club, for example, volunteering at an art fair, presenting a program, or providing hospitality at a meeting. Service units may be accumulated for use in future years.
Evidence of a service unit having been performed will be presented at a Board meeting by the scholarship chair or other relevant executive board member or committee chair. The Board will direct the recording secretary to keep a record of all service units it has accepted. No funds may be disbursed for scholarships awarded after 1/1/11 without evidence of the necessary service unit having been performed.
If a scholar or parent is an active Executive Board member or committee chair throughout the same year as the scholar receives a scholarship or special unit support the service unit requirement will be waived.
The Board will consider proposals from scholars for innovative ideas to satisfy this requirement in lieu.
