4. Provide at least two letters of recommendation

Recommendations can be submitted online by providing your recommender’s name and email address in the recommendation section of the scholarship application. An email request will be sent to the person you have identified so that a recommendation can be completed for you.

Letters of Recommendation are very important and are required to be considered for most scholarships.

5. Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Submit the FAFSA at StudentAid.gov. Some scholarships require applicants to demonstrate financial need. The FAFSA is required to determine financial need.
