  • Work experience to date and home and family responsibilities.
  • Reasons you are applying for a scholarship.
  • What has been your most beneficial educational experience thus far and why.
  • Community Service: Describe the organization and location of that organization, job-related tasks and other involvement.
  • Discuss some of your hobbies and interests: what you do with your spare time.
  • Tell us about a time when you demonstrated leadership.
  • List awards and honors that you have received.
