Lucy mentioned that previously in January or Feb the Board presented to the group a financial budget and in there you would have a scholarship or any other thing that you wanted and then a vote would be yes or no, so what will the parameters of the scholarship? a percent of dues or percent of the budget or a flat dollar amount.
