The application consists of a few yes/no questions as well as several short essays. However, some of the questions require additional information. Several require an additional essay or letter or recommendation. Please know, of the over 60 different awards within the Endowed Scholarship Program (ESP), there are only a few in which your student record cannot answer, therefore we need to ask specific yes/no questions. Don’t be discouraged if your answer to each of them is no. These answers are more of a determinant for us to help better place the candidate in the scholarship pool that best meets their qualifications (or needs). For example, eligibility criteria can be one or more of the following: demographic, gender, ethnicity, major, merit, or financial need. The applicant will be an eligible candidate for the numerous awards in ESP provided that they meet the specific criteria and complete the application by the deadline of March 17, 2017.
The main essay topic is: “Describe your personal journey toward earning a college degree, and how the degree impacts your future.”
Please note: In order to be considered for a scholarship, applicant must be an officially accepted student with fulltime enrollment anticipated for both the Fall and Spring semesters, and have filed the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the FAFSA,(if applicable) prior to 12 midnight Monday, March 17, 2017.
