Applications go through three rounds of scoring and are judged by a diverse group of credit union employees and third-party judges. Any revealing information about an applicant is concealed so that judges can review applications without knowing who they are scoring.

Each application is evaluated based on financial need, academic success, volunteer experience, the essay, and a written recommendation.
