Your student information


Eligibility questions

Don't worry if you don't answer yes to some of these questions. Not all of our scholarships have additional eligibility requirements. This will help us determine if you are eligible for a few others.

We strongly recommend you complete your FAFSA before submitting this form. You can fill out your FAFSA at https://fafsa.ed.gov. If you are an international student, an undocumented student or DACA recipient, it's okay if you haven't filled out a FAFSA. COS still has scholarships that you may qualify for in the upcoming award cycle. If you have completed a TASFA, please attach that documentation to your essay below.


Upload your essay

Many of our scholarships require essays about your experiences and goals. Try to keep your essay to one page max, but don't stress if it's more than that. We're looking for an essay that describes any or all of the following:

  1. Your career goals, including but not limited to:
    • What you want to do after finishing your current degree.
    • How your specific education will help you achieve your goals.
    • Any internships, jobs, or real-world experiences you've had related to your career goals.
  2. Your extracurricular activities, including but not limited to:
    • Participation in student organizations.
    • Volunteer work.
    • Community or civic contributions.
  3. Your research interests or activities.
  4. Any hardships or difficulties you've faced in pursuing your education.

You'll need to submit your essay as a PDF. View instructions on how to create a PDF (the link opens in a new window, don't worry!)

Since you've said that you're doing research, we highly recommend including information about your research activities in your essay.


Upload your CV

Based on how you've answered the questions on this form so far, we also need your CV as part of your application.

Your references

Please give us the email addresses for 2 references from whom you wish to request letters of recommendation. If possible, your references should be from your department or within the field you're purusing. We will send them a web link via email at which they can submit their letters of recommendation for you.

We recommend that you let your references know ahead of time that you're requesting a letter from them. That way, they'll know to keep an eye out for the email--and get your recommendation in sooner!

We strongly recommend you let your references know ahead of time that you're seeking scholarship recommendations from them. You can continue and submit this form if you haven't let them know, but you're much more likely to get useful recommendations from your references that will help you land a scholarship if you let them know ahead of time.

Since you've said that you've served the Chemistry department in some way, we strongly recommend making one of your references someone in the Chemistry department who can speak to your contributions.

Since you've said that you're doing research, it's a good idea to use a reference that has guided or knows about your research activities.


Other scholarship forms for you

Before you submit this form, we want to let you know that you may qualify for other scholarships that aren't included in this application form.

Good news! Did you know Teach North Texas also offers scholarships to its students? After submitting this form, we highly recommend submitting the TNT scholarship form (link opens in a new window) to be considered for over $10,000 in additional scholarships.
