Kirby Scholars undergo a rigorous selection process involving a review committee of faculty, Allan P. Kirby Center staff, and the executive-in-residence. The scholars provide services to the clients and to the Allan P. Kirby Center. In turn, they receive experience in their field of study and formal recognition of their work.
