    5. You will receive your scholarship funds within two weeks of submitting your W-9.

    Application Details

    To access the online application, you will first be asked to create an account. After creating an account, you will see four sections that make up your portion of the application. All sections must be completed and submitted to be considered. You will be able to save and edit your application before submitting.

    1. Applicant Information

    This section consists of a general information form. You will need to input your contact information and school details.
