The application process is open from the beginning of November to the beginning of February.
As applicants proceed through the stages, they will receive other deadlines for submitting transcripts, the interview process, submitting the FAFSA Student Aid Report, and submitting college acceptance letters and financial aid award forms
The online application and two recommendations are due Friday, February 3, 2017 at 5:00 PM CST.
Yes, you may apply for our scholarship if you have not been accepted to a college yet. However, finalists must verify their college acceptance and financial aid package.
Your application and recommendation forms can only be submitted electronically through our online application software.
Consider people who can speak to your strengths, growth, achievements, and/or involvements. One recommendation must come from a teacher and another must be filled out by an adult who can speak to who you are and your accomplishments (a counselor, advisor, mentor, coach, teacher, manager, boss, etc.).
No recommendation forms from family members or personal friends will be accepted.
Incoming first-year scholars are awarded scholarships up to $10,000, depending on financial need.
As long as you are in good standing with the Foundation, you can renew your scholarship for up to four years (eight semesters) of full-time undergraduate study.
The Foundation awards scholarships based on financial need and merit. To understand your financial situation, the Foundation needs to know how much federal and/or state aid you are receiving, as well as additional grants and scholarships you may be receiving from your college or university and other sources.
New scholars will be notified in mid-May.
The number of scholarships awarded each year varies, but typically we award 30-40 new scholarships. The Foundations hopes to award as many scholarships as our budget allows.
Please contact Megan McGinnity, Scholarship Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org with specific questions.
Once you submit your application form and three essays, you will receive an immediate confirmation from the software and a confirmation email. You will not receive confirmation when your recommenders submit their forms, but they will receive an immediate confirmation from the software and a confirmation email.
To know if everything was submitted, the Foundation recommends asking your recommenders if they submitted their forms correctly and on time.
You will need to read the Pullman Scholar Handbook and sign the Pullman Scholar Agreement which details all expectations.
You’ll also need to attend mandatory events such as the Annual Pullman Scholar Symposium.
