Helpful tips:

  • Draft and edit your essay in a word document and then copy and paste it into the online application form. The online form does not have a spell check feature or other editing features.
  •   Save your recommendation letters on the computer so they are easy to upload.
  •  If you cannot obtain an electronic copy of your transcript or don’t have access to a scanner for paper copy, you may mail it to us, but please include your scholarship log-in and password so we may upload it.  
  •  If you cannot scan your parent/guardian release form, you may mail it to us, but please include your scholarship log-in and password so we may upload it.
