Preparation for the Interview
Notification of arrangements for personal interviews with eligible applicants will be initiated by the Board Member interviewer.
Applicants will be evaluated on academic purpose, character, leadership qualities, goals, personal pursuits (such as work, hobbies, volunteer service, sports, etc) and knowledge and understanding of the Meyers Foundation history and purpose. Scholastic standing is reviewed but is not used for evaluation.
If called for an interview, come prepared to present yourself and respond to questions about and discuss your life activities and their relation to your chosen field of study, your short term, mid term and long term goals as stated in the goals essay and how you plan to realistically finance your education.
Be prepared to discuss what you have learned of the Allen H. & Nydia Meyers Foundation history and how your chosen field of study and career path are relative to the Meyers Foundation's goal to support aeronautic or scientific careers.
You are also evaluated on the probability of your being able to complete a degree program and your maturity and understanding of the resources necessary to do so. Know how you plan to finance your education and what funds you have for the coming academic year.
