Why apply?

The process of applying to scholarships can be time-consuming and daunting. Thus, some students may wonder why even bother! Although winning the award is always A goal of the application process, it is not THE goal, or the only worthwhile outcome of your hard work.

There is a great deal of value in the process!

Students that actively engage with the application process for nationally competitive scholarships will:

  • Enhance and strengthen their relationships with faculty members
  • Clarify their own personal and professional goals
  • Improve skills in writing that will come in handy for graduate school applications, cover letters, and resumes
  • Learn what separates them as an individual from their peers
  • Gain confidence in themselves from completing a sophisticated application process
