- Award winners must be completing their undergraduate degrees. The scholarship is not for those receiving a master’s degree or a PhD.

Please ask them before submitting their email address and let them know when you have submitted your application because that is when they will receive the email.
- A resume listing your school and community activities, athletics, awards, offices held, and other relevant experience.
- Your most recent high school or college transcript – you must request this from your current school.
