Students applying for the college scholarships must be at least a junior status at a four-year college/university. Technical college applicants need to have completed at least one semester at a technical college or short course.

Applicants will be scored on their scholastic achievement, extra-curricular activities, leadership, and a written essay summarizing educational goals and future career plans.
