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. Based on your selections on this form so far, it looks like you may qualify for some scholarships that also require you fill out your FAFSA. It's okay if you haven't filled out your FAFSA for this year, but that means you won't qualify for some scholarships if you don't fill it out. You can fill out your FAFSA at https://fafsa.ed.gov.

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!)

Your references

Please give us the email addresses for 2 references from whom you wish to request letters of recommendation. 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.
