So the Foundation had a wonderful response to our scholarship in this our first year. Something like four times the number of applicants we were expecting!
Now the arduous task of giving each one a fair consideration. So many worthy students. Just wish we had more than one scholarship to give out.
One thing that struck me though was the cultural and netiquette gap between me and the students. I'm working on a longer post for the Foundation blog with some pointers for these young people about how to be a bit more, er, formal or professional when applying for a scholarship. Ang heard me vent a few times, but simple things were neglected like taking into account that a real live person will be receiving your email and deciding whether you would be a good ambassador for their cause.
Hope I don't come off as too preachy. Can't avoid sounding like the old guy that I am.
