Here's what you can work on to prepare:
  • Essay: one page that describes your major or course of study and what receiving a scholarship would mean to you.
  • Resume: Include your community service, extracurricular activites, work, volunteer experience, and any other community engagement that you feel will help selection committees make their decision.
