The Scholarship Partners are not responsible for and will not consider any late, lost, misdirected, illegible or incomplete Applications.

Judging/Judges

All Applications will be initially reviewed by a panel of judges comprised of representatives from the Scholarship Sponsor’s Scholarship administrators at Benchworks Inc. ("Initial Judges").

Initial Judging

The Initial Judges will first review each Application to ensure the submission is complete and the applicant meets all of the applicable eligibility requirements contained in these Rules and Regulations. All incomplete submissions and Applications submitted by ineligible applicants shall be disqualified.

The Initial Judges will consider the remaining Applications (Note: Applications submitted for the Provincial Scholarship and Employee Scholarship will be judged separately) on the following criteria and weights:

  • Personal Essay - 80%
  • ADHD Coaching Essay - 20%

Judging Criteria

The Personal Essay will be scored according to the following criteria and weights: (i) the applicant’s story (how they faced challenges, struggled, and managed to overcome them or why they were unable to overcome them) and the result (50%); (ii) whether the applicant answered the essay questions thoroughly and provided examples to clarify their points (45%) and (iii) the number of grammatical or spelling mistakes the Personal Essay contains (5%).

The ADHD Coaching Essay will be scored according to the following criteria and weights: (i) the degree to which the applicant understands the value of coaching and how it can assist them in successfully making the transition to higher education (95%); and (ii) the number of grammatical or spelling mistakes the ADHD Coaching Essay contains (5%).

The Initial Judges will forward the: (i) five (5) Applications received from entrants that meet the Provincial Scholarship Eligibility Requirements (5 each from residents of each of Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Québec) with the highest judged score, (the “Provincial Finalist Applications”); and, (ii) the five (5) Applications received from entrants that meet the Employee Scholarship Eligibility Requirements with the highest judged scores (the “Employee Finalist Applications”) (collectively, the Provincial Finalist Applications and Employee Finalist Applications shall be referred to as the “Finalist Applications”), will be provided to a panel of finalist judges selected by the Scholarship Sponsor consisting of individuals who are recognized in the ADHD community as either advocates or experts (the “Finalist Judges”).

All information which may identify an applicant will be removed from all Applications by the Initial Judges prior to such Applications being forwarded to the Finalist Judges. The odds of a Provincial Scholarship Application being forwarded to the Finalist Judges will depend on the number and caliber of eligible Applications received from applicants meeting the Provincial Scholarship Eligibility Requirements during the Program Period in each of Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Québec during the Program Period. The odds of an Employee Scholarship Application being forwarded to the Finalist Judges will depend on the number and caliber of Applications received from applicants meeting the Employee Scholarship Eligibility Requirements during the Program Period.

In the event that the Initial Judges determine that two (2) or more Provincial Scholarship Applications (from entrants from the same province) or two (2) or more Employee Scholarship Applications are tied, then such tied Applications will be re-evaluated by the Initial Judges (using the criteria set out above) to determine which tied Application from among such tied Applications shall be submitted to the Finalist Judges for consideration. In no event shall the Initial Judges submit more than the number of Applications as provided above to the Finalist Judges.

Final Judging

The panel of Finalist Judges shall re-evaluate the Provincial Finalist Applications and Employee Finalist Applications separately, but using the same criteria and weighting listed above to assign each such Finalist Application a “Score”.

The Finalist Judges shall deem the eligible Provincial Finalist Applications with the highest judged Score from amongst all Provincial Finalist Applications received in respect of each of Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Québec to be eligible to potentially receive a Provincial Scholarship, subject to further compliance with these Rules and Regulations.

The odds of any Provincial Finalist Application being judged the potential recipient of a Provincial Scholarship will depend on the caliber of Provincial Finalist Applications from the applicable province, but will be no worse than 1 in 5.

The Finalist Judges shall deem the eligible Employee Finalist Applications with the highest judged Score from amongst all Employee Finalist Applications to be eligible to potentially receive the Employee Scholarship, subject to further compliance with these Rules and Regulations. The odds of any Employee Finalist Application being judged the potential recipient of the Employee Scholarship will depend on the caliber of the Employee Finalist Applications, but will be no worse than 1 in 5.

In the event that two (2) or more Provincial Finalist Applications (from entrants from the same province) or two (2) or more Employee Finalist Applications have the same Score, such tied Applications will be re-evaluated by the Finalist Judges to determine which of such Applications shall receive the applicable Scholarship or be named as an alternate. In no event shall more than six (6) Scholarships be awarded.

Selection of Alternates

The Finalist Judges shall also select one (1) alternate potential winner for each of the five (5) Provincial Scholarships and the Employee Scholarship based on the applicable Finalist Application that received the second highest Score for each Scholarship. In the event that a potential winner of a Scholarship shall reject the Scholarship or fail to timely return a completed Acceptance Package (as defined below) the Scholarship may be awarded to the applicable alternate, subject to compliance with the terms of these Rules and Regulations.

Right to Award Less Than 6 Scholarships

In the event the Scholarship Sponsor does not receive five (5) eligible Applications for any applicable Scholarship, but receives at least one (1) eligible Application for each Scholarship that meets the minimum eligibility criteria, as determined by the Initial Judges in their sole and absolute discretion, the Initial Judges reserve the right to submit the number of each such Applications that meet the minimum eligibility criteria, as determined by the Initial Judges in their sole and absolute discretion to the Finalist Judges for consideration for the applicable Scholarship.

In the event the Finalist Judges receive an insufficient number of eligible Applications that meet the minimum eligibility criteria, or in the event that any Scholarship cannot be awarded as both the potential winner(s) and the applicable alternate(s) reject the Scholarship or fail to return the Acceptance Package in accordance with these Rules and Regulations, the Scholarship Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion, reserves the right not to award all Scholarships.

Notification of Potential Winners

Judging will be completed in Chestertown, Maryland, United States of America, and potential winners will be notified by telephone by 5:00 PM on June 8, 2016 and by certified mail. The Scholarship Sponsor is not responsible for any lost, misdirected or returned notifications or undeliverable telephone messages. Return of any notification sent to a Scholarship recipient via certified mail and returned marked as “refused,” “undeliverable,” “no such address” or any similar mark, may result in the disqualification of a potential winner and the selection of an alternate potential winner as provided for above.

Qualification of Winners

Potential winners must sign and timely return all of the following documents, in a form acceptable to the Scholarship Sponsor: Consent Forms and Release, Verification of Enrollment in a Qualifying Institution, Proof of Age, written evidence of ADHD diagnosis (the “Acceptance Package”) within twenty-one (21) days of the date notification is mailed to the potential winner. A Scholarship Recipient (as defined below) MUST complete the intake consultation with the Edge Foundation before the one thousand five hundred dollars Canadian ($1,500 CA) cheque portion of the Scholarship will be paid to the Scholarship Recipient.

The Scholarship Sponsor recommends returning the completed Acceptance Package with a delivery confirmation (i.e. via overnight mail, 2nd day delivery, certified mail return receipt requested). If a potential winner fails to return a fully signed Acceptance Package within the required timeframe, the potential winner shall be disqualified and the applicable Scholarship may be awarded to the applicable alternate. In the event that such alternate rejects the Scholarship or fails to return the Acceptance Package, the Scholarship Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion, reserves the right not to award all Scholarships.

If the Scholarship Sponsor is unable to locate a Scholarship recipient within ten (10) days, then such a Scholarship recipient may be disqualified and, at the Scholarship Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, the applicable alternate recipient may be awarded the Scholarship.

Notifications of Scholarship Recipients

Upon a timely return of a complete Acceptance Package and the completion of the intake consultation with the Edge Foundation, a potential winner shall be deemed a “Scholarship Recipient” for purposes of awarding a Scholarship.
