      Hi Kaitlyn! Thank you for reaching out. All of our scholarships use a single online application program. You can begin your application starting on November 1 and you must complete your application by February 15, 2016. We encourage you to return to our website on November 1 to get started when the application will go live. Everything is done online, including uploading any required documents. Your application is then reviewed by teams of volunteers and scored. The scores are averaged together and, based on your scores, our scholarship computer program awards the individual scholarships if you meet the criteria and score the highest. Each scholarship has its own unique scoring criteria. Good luck!
