  2. To review current scholarships and awards and make recommendations about creating or retiring awards.
  3. As necessary, coordinate with Service and Partnerships in the judging of applications for internships.
  4. In light of the Global Crisis, re-evaluate committee tasks and responsibilities so as to use Society resources, reducing costs where possible.
