Tips on Completing Your Application

Essays

  • Do not use the essay box in the application to write your essay. Type your essay first using a regular word processor program such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs and then copy and paste it into the essay box. This will help prevent incidents in case you accidently close the browser and forgot to save.
  • Proofread! Spelling and grammar mistakes may get you disqualified. Make sure to read your essay at least twice before submitting.
  • Stick to the word count limit. Exceeding the limit or not writing enough may disqualify you.
  • Make sure you cater your essay to the topic.

Uploads (i.e. Papers, etc.)

The acceptable upload file types are .jpeg, .jpg, .doc, .docx, .pdf, and .png.

Letters of Recommendation

  • When requesting for reference letters or letters of recommendation, please request them from your pastor, professor, or any supervisor who can speak qualities in reference the scholarship criteria. Please do not get a friend or family member to write one for you.
  • The "Get a Letter of Recommendation" task will send an email to your requested recommender. The recommender will then be asked to fill out a short questionnaire, speaking to your fitness of the award.
  • Please ensure that your recommender completes the form. You will be unable to submit your application until the recommender completes their form.

Financial Aid Need Form

Do not forget to complete the “Describe your personal or family financial circumstances” question on page 3 of the Financial Aid Need form as it helps give the financial aid committee context into your situation.
