SECTION 6. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, AUTHORIZATION AND WAIVER

I understand that, if I receive a scholarship, my acceptance of that award obligates me to commence and complete each year of studies for which financial aid is granted by the University of Michigan Club of Los Angeles (hereby referred to as “the Club”), unless good cause for not doing so can be shown. I acknowledge that my eligibility for continued financial assistance is contingent upon my retaining at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average while enrolled full-time in classes taken at The University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus, and that I am obligated to provide the Club’s Scholarship Committee with a copy of my transcript after each semester to verify my continued eligibility. I understand that these scholarships are for undergraduate studies only, for fall and winter semesters only. I also authorize the Club to use my name and photograph to publicize its scholarship program, and to make reasonable efforts to contact me while I am in Ann Arbor to verify my continued eligibility for scholarship, and to publicize Club events. Finally, I understand that all decisions of the Club’s Scholarship Committee are final, and I waive any right to object to those decisions, or to bring any claim or cause of action against the Club or any of its members as a result of any action taken by the Committee or its members.
