Supplemental Questions
  1. An essay is required as part of the application in addition to your resume. Please limit essay to three pages (resume is in addition to your three page essay and not part of the three page maximum). Respond to the following questions:
    1. What are your goals for senior year? How is your major part of those goals?
    2. Where do you see yourself in five years?
    3. Please describe your financial need. For example, do you work during the school year? If so, how many hours and do the number of hours change in summer? How much student debt have you accumulated?
    4. How would not having to pay for tuition help you reach your goals?
  2. Please upload your resume.
  3. Recommendations will be used to determine whether you are a strong candidate for the scholarship(s) associated with the application. You should carefully consider who you request for a recommendation. We strongly recommend that you ask a Communication Arts professor, instructor or teaching assistant to serve as your recommender. Your recommender will be asked to answer a couple of questions instead of submitting a letter. Be sure to contact the recommender(s) to let them know you listed them as a recommender for this application.
