At the close of each application period, a panel of unbiased third party people will review applications received during the application period and select a tentative awardee based on the overall impression of the content of the student statement contained in the application.
After tentative selection, third party and/or Gray-Daniels Auto Group will contact the Sponsor that the student stated on the application (via the contact information listed in the application) and request verification that the tentative awardee’s grade point average, or equivalent, meets the eligibility requirements and Gray-Daniels Automotive Group will announce the award of the Gray-Daniels Drives Education Scholarship to the awardee on Gray-Daniels social media outlets. The tentative awardee, or in the case of a minor, the tentative awardee’s parent/legal guardian, must respond to the notification within five (5) calendar days and execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, Publicity Release and Release of Liability and any additional documentation requested by Gray-Daniels within the 5-day time period.

Upon the Student’s enrollment into an accredited two or four-year college, university or vocational institution, the Student, or parent(s)/legal guardian(s), must notify Gray-Daniels of that enrollment and Gray-Daniels will redeem the voucher by directly paying the amount of $2,500.00 to the institution.
