Statement of Financial Need
On a separate piece of paper, please include a short (500 word max) piece that explains why you would benefit from being awarded a scholarship.
Here are some points that you should consider including:
a) How will you be financing your education? Sources of financial aid, help from family, taking out student loans or private loans, working at a job.
b) What difficulties have you faced in paying for your education? Are there extra costs this year? Has there been a change in your family or personal situation that is making it harder for you to pay for college?
c) What would you gain from this scholarship? Would it help you to be able to work less so that you can focus on your studies? Do you need support so that you can take an unpaid internship, an interns or community service?
