- Read the Tips for Each Question: Each question will have a Symbol next to it. Hover over it with your mouse or tap on it (on your phone) to reveal more specific tips about this question.
- Stay on Topic: This scholarship is not awarded to the person who completes the most hours of volunteer work. Mention your accomplishments or personal anecdotes only when relevant.
- Keep it Readable and Brief: The easiest community plans to understand are the ones that are quick to read and understand. Don't use ostentatious verbiage unless necessary. Keep your answers as short as possible without sacrificing detail.
- Be Specific on 'How': Be sure to give as much detail as possible on how your proposed plans will address your issues. (eg. Don't just tell us you want to open a homeless shelter for example, tell us what your homeless shelter will do to prevent homelessness in the future. How are you planning on getting your funding?What will be your most beneficial programs and policies?)
