The Professor Pat Browne Scholarship fund will be used to help AJJF registrants attend a DZRSI DZRRT Program, who could not otherwise attend because of financial limitations.
The scholarship will be $300 and will be offered as a “work/study” grant, in which the recipient may be asked to help the Director of the program s/he attends.
If there are insufficient funds to provide a full scholarship, the student will be notified and a partial scholarship may be awarded.
The scholarship will be funded primarily by donations from DZRRT sessions received at AJJF Annual National Convention from registrants, donations, or other supporters.
The expenditure for each program from the Scholarship Fund will not exceed 60% of the amount in the fund at the end of the fiscal year.
This amount will be used to help as many members as practicable attend programs.
If more applicants apply than can be offered scholarships, a random drawing, from the pool of eligible applicants, will be used to determine the recipients of the scholarship.
Applicant eligibility will be determined by the DZRSI Standards Committee, based on the application information and the Sensei recommendation.
Applicant must be:
- AJJF Registrant
- 18 years old
- Complete and submit a DZRSI Student Agreement
- Fill out the application completely
- Print clearly or type
- Send completed application to the DZRSI Records Administrator at:
- Request your sensei complete the Sensei Recommendation Form
Incomplete applications, or applications received after the Program Director’s stated deadline will not be considered for the scholarship.
