Our scholarship application for the 2024 scholarship cycle is open November 1st, 2023 – January 12th, 2024. Below, you will find a list of what you will need to apply. We are looking forward to awarding more students in May of 2024.

  • Check out your eligibility for financial aid by completing a “Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).” You can do that at this official U.S. government website. Since the FAFSA will open this year in December 2023, upload your FAFSA Submission Summary by February 19th, 2024.
  • Get your most up-to-date transcript — official or unofficial.
  • Obtain a letter of recommendation from someone outside your family.
  • Fill out our online application. Applications are open from November 1st, 2023 – January 12th, 2024 at 11:59pm.

Whether we offer you a scholarship or not, you’ll learn a lot about yourself through the process. Be bold — apply.
