Hello! I have a couple questions about this scholarship. Can I use a letter of recommendation from my youth pastor? And lastly, I have been doing dual credit for a while, so while this would be my first year of college out of high school, it isn’t my first year of college. Will this change eligibility?
Hi Caroline, your youth pastor would be fine because he or she would be considered a community leader. You are eligible to apply for the scholarship, even with your dual enrollment. Good luck!
Hi Mrs. Matthews! I happened to find this scholarship a little late and I think it is a really cool opportunity. Will you be opening it back up for application this December as well? Thank you for your time!
Hi Haleigh, I will definitely be offering the scholarship for next year!
