Scholarship Questions and Answers

How are the scholarships for your program awarded?

Scholarships with a wide range of financial coverage are available. Our scholarships are based on need of services and are rewarded to applicants that show a strong willingness to want to improve their areas of difficulty. While quality and honesty of the application are taken into account, no discrimination will be held towards the academic nature or any lack of abilities that may appear in the essay portion.  The scholarships are awarded to students that show how learning, school or any related areas have proven to be difficult obstacles to overcome.   We ask that you include personal accounts of the experiences which have led you to seek additional assistance in furthering the skills needed for success. 

What can I do to improve my scholarship potential?

The scholarship review committee will place extra emphasis on the applicants ability to express life experiences that show a need for our services.  Concentrate on what makes you special and go from there. Remember: perseverance, initiative, determination, and timeliness are  the keys to being successful.  Scholarships will be awarded to those students who show that they have the willingness and drive to complete our program.  

What are the page length, word count and other specific requirements of the application essay? 

Young children or students who are not proficient writers may want to use pictures, aided by descriptive captions completed by a parent or guardian, to convey their responses.  Older students, who are able to build complete sentences, will want to use thoughtful and insightful  descriptions to complete the application process.  There are no page length or word count requirements.  We are looking for overall quality, rather then quantity to ensure that applicants are explaining themselves to the fullest extent.  We recommend that the length of your essay responses reflect the amount of space needed to express all the information that you would want to convey.

Is there a limit to how many scholarships I can receive in a year?

Students have unlimited chances to apply for the scholarships.  However, scholarship winners shall not receive additional  funding until 365 days have passed since the initial application.
