This Scholarship program is a proud embodiment of the shared values of both the and the Stephen Linder Foundation organizations:

  1. Shameless self-aggrandizing through philanthropic acts.
  2. Delivering relentless and unyielding support to things that would have otherwise succeeded anyway.

How are Recipients Chosen?

We reserve the right to pick whomever the heck we want to, even if that choice is blatantly arbitrary and/or more or less selected at random.  That being said we will make every effort to insure the process is as fair as possible, but we just really don't the money to go to a total jerk who just happens to be really good at churning out anti-Scurvy essays.
