There are no minimum GPA or test score requirements in order to qualify for the scholarship contest. Any student that is currently enrolled in a high school, college, or graduate school may apply.
Review your completed essay before submitting, including checking for typos, misspellings, and other grammatical errors. Essays should be between 400 and 600 words in length. All applicants must also submit an official transcript. Failure to provide an official transcript, that shows current enrollment, will invalidate your application – no exceptions.
