  • QUOTE
    The scholarship significantly helps my financial situation. Without it, I would need to spend significant time during the school year working. This scholarship gives me the financial stability to focus on school and my research. I greatly appreciate it.

In addition to information requested on the Scholarship Form, applicants must attach an individual statement of 200 words or less, typed, double-spaced, describing career plans, reports on special projects, leadership roles, work experience, and community involvement. This is an opportunity for the applicant to convey specific career plans relating to a particular area of interest.

Applications should include three official Recommendation Forms from educators or employers. Applicants may apply for up to two scholarship programs. This must be indicated at the bottom of the Scholarship Application Form.
