 An important part of your application will be the required three letters of reference.  One must be from your guidance counselor, together with your high school transcript and college test scores.  Choose carefully the other two people you select.  They should be well acquainted with you, but not related.  These letters of reference should be enclosed with your application in an envelope sealed and signed across the seal by the person writing your reference.

Another important area will be your essay.  Basically, tell us about yourself.  It would help if we were to know your areas of interest and special activities.  Also, be sure to tell us your reasons for choosing to seek a degree in Marine Biology, Oceanography, the Marine Sciences or a related Environmental Science.  We enjoy the rivers, bays, and ocean found around us.  We would like to give our scholarship to someone that is interested in these areas also.  Please limit your essay to one type-written page. 

The scholarship committee feels that it is important for all applicants to be judged by educational, community, civic, and religious leaders.  A non-voting chairman has been selected and it will be their responsibility to organize all applicants and ensure they are properly processed. 

In review, you must submit the following in one complete package postmarked by April 15, 2024:
