All applications will be reviewed by the scholarship committee chairman to verify eligibility.  The winner will be selected by a committee of four TAA full-member auctioneers.  The scholarship will be awarded to the winner at the TAA Convention.  One final step for the winner will be to forward proof of enrollment in an NAA designation program, auction school or accredited college or vocational school to the TAA Secretary/Treasurer at the address above.
