Candidates must have a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale) or the equivalent and have completed either three semesters or four quarters of course work (typically current sophomores or juniors).
Selection is based on scholastic excellence, participation and leadership roles in chapter, campus and community activities, and required recommendations.
The yearly application deadline is February 15.
(Supporting materials are also due by February 15.)
