If you submit an application, you’ll be notified of our award decision by e-mail in late May. Applicants with incomplete or unsubmitted applications won’t be notified.

Make sure you provide us with the-mail address you check daily. We may e-mail you if we have questions about your application.

Award Acceptance and Payment of Scholarships

If awarded, you’re required to complete a series of Award Acceptance items before we’ll mail your scholarship to your school. The award notification e-mail in May will have more information regarding your Award Acceptance.
