APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS / GET HELP FROM THE EAP STAFF!

Let the EAP staff help you with your scholarship application essays!  Statistics have shown that students who ask the EAP staff for help have a better chance of receiving a scholarship than students who do not.  EAP staff could help you brainstorm ideas and review/edit your essays.  Be sure to research your scholarship options.

How to get help in person:
Step 1: Attend a scholarship workshop
Step 2: Review your scholarship options / schedule an appointment  with an EAP Advisor to brainstorm essay ideas. If you already have the first draft of your essay completed, please bring it to your appointment.  Fill out the scholarship application worksheet  prior to your meeting and bring it with you.  Schedule your appointment today. 
Step 3: Submit / email the first draft of your essay prior to your appointment time. 
Step 4: Make your essay revisions and get your 2nd draft reveiwed if needed.
Step 5: If needed, make additional revisions and submit your 3rd draft and then submit your scholarship application.

How to submit your essay for review by email:
Email your essay to eapscholarships@gmail.com.  Your essay will be reviewed by the EAP staff or by EAP alumni. 
In the email message, be sure to include your full name, EAP program and the scholarship(s) you’re apply for.   It would also be very helpful if you could email your completed scholarship application worksheet - this will help us in the review process.
