How To Apply
New applicants are required to furnish a high school equivalency certificate or a full high school transcript if just entering college, or a transcript for the last completed academic year if already attending college. A letter of recommendation is required for all new applicants. New applicants who are enrolled in (or have recently completed) high school should obtain a letter from a member of the high school faculty or administration. New applicants with a high school equivalency certificate should obtain a letter from a trusted life advisor who can speak to the applicant’s life skills and achievements.
All renewal applicants must send a transcript from from the college they currently attend.
If a transcript cannot be made available from the college by June 1st the applicant MUST send a copy of their grades received for the first semester. This will hold their application open until the transcript arrives. The transcript MUST be received in the Foundation office no later than July 1st.
