Spring 2017-2018 Scholarship is Now OPEN

We have opened our spring scholarship! The deadline is April 15, 2018. However, we encourage all applicants to apply as early as possible. There is no advantage to applying late. In fact, applying early gives our judges more time to read your submissions. As you can imagine many applicants wait until the last minute and we get a flood of applications near the deadline which means our judges have less time to review those submissions. So get a jumpstart and apply today! Good luck!
