Application Requirements

  1. Completed application form.
  2. Official high school transcript.
  3. One letter of recommendation from a teacher or counselor at the student’s current school.
  4. Two letters of recommendation from people or organizations closely familiar with the applicant’s community service, leadership activities or charity work. Writers must neither be related to the applicant nor staff members of the applicant’s school.

Applicants are encouraged to procure the three letters of recommendation specifically for this application. Previously written letters of recommendation (e.g. for Student-of-the-Month awards) are acceptable if less than a year old, but applicants must provide copies of all letters with the application. All three letters of recommendation must include the following:

  1. Identification of the writer along with a home or business address and phone number.
  2. How long the writer has known the applicant, and the nature of their relationship.
  3. Specific references to the selection criteria germane to the writer’s relationship to the applicant, the qualities and experiences that recommend the applicant for this award.

APPLICATIONS MUST BE COMPLETELY FILLED OUT. THIS IS PART
OF THE APPLICATION PROCESS. IF YOU DO NOT COMPLETE ALL SECTIONS AND PROVIDE ALL REQUESTED DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING COMPLETE AND ACCURATE FINANCIAL INFORMATION FOR YOU AND YOUR PARENTS YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE DISCARDED WITHOUT REVIEW.
