HOW DOES THE APPLICATION PROCESS WORK?
To apply, please fill out this application form between December 9, 2022 and February 1, 2023. In the 2022-2023 school year, both juniors and seniors in high school are eligible to apply. In the future the scholarship will be open only to juniors. This is a need based program, and students must be eligible for the federal financial aid program (Pell grant) in order to win a scholarship. If you have questions about how financial need is measured and if you are eligible, please feel free to reach out to Kristin Kearns-Jordan at email@example.com either before or after filling out the application.
The scholarship application includes a statement of leadership, high school transcript (an unofficial transcript is ok), an activities sheet, and one recommendation from an adult mentor or teacher. Standardized test scores will not be considered by the Foundation, although they may be required at some of the colleges to which students apply.
