The Beat the Odds program has a two-step scholarship nomination/application process.
STEP 1: All interested students must complete the following application on or before Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Note: the online application does not save progress - so please take a moment to review our checklist to ensure you have access to all the requisite information before you proceed to the application.
STEP 2: All applications must include a completed nomination form and a letter of recommendation submitted by an adult outside of their family with direct knowledge of the applicants academic potential and accomplishments, committment to community service, and capacity for ethical leadership. You will be asked to provide the name and email address of the nominator of your choice after you complete the main application. We will contact the nominators and direct them to the online nomination form.
Applications must be completed and post-marked by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 in order to qualify. We encourage you to complete the application at least a week in advance of the deadline so that emails can be sent to those individuals who will be completing the nomination form.
Please answer all the following questions as completely as possible. Type “N/A” if the question does not apply.
