In essay format of 500 words or less, please include the following:

  • Briefly state your financial need.
  • Indicate your academic goals, including plans for future education, as well as your desired career path.
  • List clubs, organizations or volunteer work in which you have been involved in.
  • In addition, list any jobs or circumstances which demonstrate your leadership capabilities.
  • The review committee really wants to know about you. Describe what sets you apart from other applicants.

DO NOT include personal identifying information in the essay. (For Example: Name, Hometown, High School, etc…)

A few polishing tips!

  • Be THOROUGH – Give yourself adequate time to write your essay. Rushing though it will result in submitting less than your best work; consequently, your application not being selected.
  • BE PRECISE – For every idea you present, make sure you can back it up with examples and specifics. Being too vague or general may demonstrate to the review committee that, while although you have solid ideas,
    you cannot elaborate on them or did not take the time to do so.

Type or paste essay here. Note: Essays exceeding 500 words will be excluded from consideration.

By signing below, I confirm the information I’ve provided is accurate and give permission for the scholarship committee to access and review my academic and financial records(including, but not limited to: FAFSA information, unmet need, grades, etc.) I also understand that scholarship monies are limited and qualification does not guarantee award. I also agree to send a letter of thanks to the donor of any scholarship I may receive prior to being awarded the money. I understand that if a thank you note is not received by the first disbursement date of the term, scholarship award(s) may be reallocated. Scholarships are considered awards and recipient names and photos may be used in publications.
