A written request for extension of reporting deadlines, with no additional funding, must detail the reasons for the request and be received by the Foundation 30 days prior to the expiration of the scholarship term. Failure of the scholarship recipient to comply with the policies governing this scholarship may be grounds denial of any future consideration by the Foundation for any of its programs and/or job placement referrals upon graduation.
