Selections of future Roan Scholars are divided into three steps:
In Step One, a screening panel reviews all nomination packets to ensure that applications are complete and the eligibility requirements are met.
Step Two involves Regional Selection Committees whose members have been chosen because they exhibit the same qualities and characteristics which are being sought in Roan Scholar nominees. Regional Selection Committees evaluate credentials, interview each eligible nominee, and select regional finalists from their applicant pool.
In Step Three, the finalists will be invited to the ETSU campus for a formal interview with the Roan Scholars Steering Committee. Appointed by our President, the Steering Committee is the oversight group for the Roan Scholars Leadership Program.
Application, interview, and selection deadlines will be established each year and school counselors will be notified well in advance. Roan nominees will have the opportunity to learn further details about the program and selections at a Roan information session that is scheduled the day of ETSU's November Open House.
