Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I applied last year, but didn't win the scholarship, can I apply again?

Yes, last year's applicants, excluding the winners, may apply again in the current year.


Do I need to be a full-time student in order to be eligible for the scholarship? 

No, part-time students are also eligible for the scholarship. You must be taking at least 6 credit hours to be eligible. We understand that everyone's situation is different and not everyone is able to enroll into school full-time. 


I am planning to apply for the scholarship that will be offered next year, how can I prepare? 

The best plan is to open your savings account and checking account in advance. When it comes time for the scholarship, all you will have to do is complete the application and essay. Learn more about required documents.
