Preliminary Review

If your application is fully submitted by Friday, February 12, 2021 the staff will review your application for completeness and email you with any issues by March 1, 2021. This will give you time to correct any problems before the final deadline on Friday, March 12, 2021.

This does not increase your chances of receiving a scholarship but provides an opportunity for mistakes to be corrected before the deadline and decreases the possibility of your application being ineligible.
