Essay Guidelines and Tips

The best essays convey your academic goals and clearly explain how the financial assistance that Foundation scholarships provide will assist you. We encourage you to be honest and forthcoming as you write your essay.

The essay must be from 500 – 800 words. New applications without an essay will not be considered.

  1. Write a brief biography of yourself and your academic and career goals for the next five years and why have you decided to pursue these goals.
  2. Tell us about your participation in activities at school, in clubs, or community service organizations and how it contributed to the organization and to your personal growth.
  3. Explain why you are applying for a scholarship and why you should be given one. Include any special circumstances (such as financial need or family situations that the selection committee should consider)
