Scholarship Application Process
In addition to the application, students must also submit the following documents electronically.
- A current unofficial transcript may be sent for use during the review process. Scholarship recipients will be required to mail a sealed, official transcript. If you will be a sophomore in college, please send both high school and college transcripts. If you are unable to obtain your high school transcript, please check the appropriate box where indicated on the signature addendum page.
- A letter of recommendation from a principal or dean, department head, or instructor from your school.
- The signature addendum page of this application, signed by both student and a parent or guardian.
NOTE: All applications, transcripts, letters of recommendation, and original completed signature addendum page must be received electronically on or before February 1, 2013, in order to be considered. Please e-mail all supporting materials to Jean McClure at email@example.com.
Incomplete or late applications will not be considered. Information submitted will be maintained in confidence and used solely for purposes of analyzing this scholarship application.
Selection is made by a Scholarship Committee of four individuals, who carefully review all applications. Students are ranked based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities and financial need. Winners will be notified by mail on or before June 1, 2013. Awards will be mailed to the school by July 16, 2013. A check will be sent to the first choice school you indicate on question 8. If your school plans change prior to July 16, please promptly notify IAPD with new information. Scholarship awardees will be contacted prior to fund distribution to verify personal information, and to obtain your social security number and a recent photograph of yourself (digital or print only; cell phone photographs cannot be accepted).
All applications must be submitted online. The additional supporting documents must be in English to be accepted.
