Submitted via computer or postmarked by May 4, any interested graduating high school seniors and G.E.D. recipients need to complete applications, essays and transcripts.
“These scholarships, which total more than $1 million and are made available from the generosity of member institutions, need good matches so we could use more applicants for the scholarship selection process,” Minick added.
