There is a fantastic pdf page clearly outlining all the qualification requirements and selection criteria, so be sure to download it, read it over carefully, and include all seven criteria in your application. Since this is an online only application, have a link to your scholarship resume ready to share. A personal website or Pinterest link is also a great idea, since you can show the judges what you are truly about and not take up valuable word count space by just providing the link.
