Application packets consist of the completed application form, a one-to-two page personal essay, a copy of the student’s most recent school-issued report card or transcript, and a letter of support by non-family members. The essay must identify the student’s educational and career goals and discuss why the student has chosen those goals. In the essay, the applicant also must discuss how the scholarship will help the student live out their vocation and be in service to others.The scholarship committee will give particular consideration to the thoughtfulness of the personal essay, the applicant’s enthusiasm and determination for reaching his or her educational goal, and the applicant’s participation in Mount Tabor congregational life, leadership, and volunteer activities.
The form, essay, a scanned copy of the report card, and letter of support may be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org
