The Dade Moeller Scholarship Foundation program is open to the high school-aged children of Dade Moeller employees who are entering their first year at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university. The winners are selected by an independent evaluator using a weighted rating system that evaluates six criteria: activities and jobs, honors and awards, leadership, class rank, grade point average, and SAT or ACT test scores.
