In order for the Foundation to consider an application, you must complete the online application and attach the following documents: a narrative essay; your most recent transcript (students are required to send a copy of their second semester transcript when it becomes available.); a copy of your Student Aid Report; and your Financial Aid Package (CFA) from your College/University.

Successful applicants will be notified by early-July. Students will receive grant letters along with Certificates of Award/Eligibility. These certificates need to be signed by the student and the College Bursar or Financial Aid Officer and returned to the Foundation before a grant check, made payable to the college, may be issued. Scholarship funds may be applied against tuition, board, and school supplies. Funds for the fall semester are typically released on or around August 1; funds for second semester are released on or around December 1.
