Before starting the online application process, be sure to carefully read the
Applicant Requirements to determine your eligibility and
ensure you have the necessary information on hand to complete the application.
You may find it helpful to download and print
(Adobe PDF or MS Word)
a hardcopy of the application help sheet, as the online application is identical. This may help answer any
questions you may have as to the contents of the application.
Finally, this application requires you submit an original 500-word essay
(see the Applicant Requirements for details). Although we provide
a facility to submit this essay online, we suggest writing the essay before starting the online
application in a word processor (such as Microsoft Word or Corel WordPerfect) and then pasting
the essay into the appropriate text box of the application.
Note: We are sorry, but if you have previously received this award, you are uneligible to receive it again.
