List
committee recommendations, if any, to the Board:

The
question was raised by several part-time students asking if they are eligible
to apply for the scholarship as well. Though the Guideline states that the
Scholarships are open to full-time students, is it possible for the Board to
reconsider this criterion (or considering one small amount of Scholarship: The $200 Huang Tso-ping and Wu Yao-yu Scholarship (USA)
goes to part-time students) so that the Scholarship can reach a larger pool of
applicants?
