TO SUBMIT A GREAT APPLICATION: Read and answer each question truthfully on the application.  The best way to make your application stand out is to submit an excellent essay.   When completing the essay portion of the application, it is very important to respond to each aspect of the essay prompt.  Essays are evaluated on grammar, complete response to all aspects of the prompt and the quality of the essay.  Your application will automatically be filtered against all available scholarships for which you qualify.  Because the application also uses information from SWORDS, it is also very important that you update and maintain your personal information in SWORDS.
