To qualify, students must also be enrolled, or intending to enroll, in an accredited community college, college or university, or an accredited trade, vocational/technical school for the Fall 2024 quarter or semester.

A selection committee will review each student’s high school transcripts, current GPA of 2.5 or higher, and two personal recommendation letters.
