Individuals selected to provide recommendations will be contacted directly via email when the student submits the general scholarship application. A link to our online recommendation form will be provided. Only the online form will be accepted. Conversely, letters of recommendation mailed or emailed to the Foundation will not be accepted. Recommendations are due on March 5.
The recommendation rules above pertain to our general scholarships. If you are applying for a scholarship that requires a separate application, follow the rules found on that application.
If you want to learn more about the recommendation process, contact Stacy Timmerman, Director of Scholarships via email.
Do not begin your general application until your first semester (or first trimester) grades and updated cumulative grade point average are available. Depending on your school's schedule, you might need to wait until the first week of February to receive this information and then begin your general scholarship application.
General scholarship applications are due at 5:00 p.m. on March 1 and must be submitted online. No other electronic or paper submissions will be accepted.
