We know some people think, "I could never win a scholarship. There are probably one million people better qualified than I am." If you meet the basic requirements for an award, apply! Let the scholarship committee decide who gets the award. If you don't apply for an award, we can guarantee that you aren't going to get it!
You can give yourself a competitive advantage by reading and following the directions carefully. Provide everything that is required. Be sure to complete the entire application.
It is recommended that you type your answers to the “Free Form Questions” in Word and then cut and paste into the text box provided on the online application. Proofread the entire application carefully. Ask a friend, teacher, or parent to proofread it as well.
