- A copy of your Academic Transcript (unofficial)

- A one-page personal statement.
- Unofficial copy of most recent educational document (GED or high school diploma)
Optional attachments (highly recommended):
- FAFSA statement (via your financial aid portal)
Who should I ask to write my recommendations?
You will need two recommendations, and at least one from someone who knows you academically, such as an instructor, advisor or counselor. The second recommendation may be from a non-academic source such as an employer, community leader or volunteer colleague, etc. We suggest giving your recommenders a copy of your personal statement or resume to assist them as they discuss your qualifications.
If you don’t have someone who knows you academically, you may submit two letters from a non-academic, non-family source. No recommendations from family members are accepted.
What should the recommendation letter cover?
It should explain in depth how the person knows you and why they feel the Foundation should invest in you as a valuable candidate for a scholarship. If the letter is from one of your academic references, the faculty member can address your academic or career goals and comment on any personal or academic achievements you have attained.
What should I put in my personal statement?
Organize your statement so that readers can clearly understand who you are, your academic and career goals, and why you deserve to receive a scholarship. Share aspects of your background that will help the committee understand your obstacles, successes and the lessons you’ve learned from them. The ideal length is one single-spaced page.
How do I know my student status?
You must identify yourself in one student status when submitting your application.
- Are you going to graduate from high school this spring and start Seattle Central immediately in Fall 2013? You’re in the High School Student Status.
- Have you had some college credits at Seattle Central or elsewhere or an extended break since graduating from high school or college? You are in the Incoming / Continuing College Status.
- Have you been attending Seattle Central during the 2012-2013 year and plan to attend a different four-year institution in 2013-2014? You are in the Transfer Student status.
Why do I have to provide my financial information?
You don’t have to reveal any financial information if you choose not to. However, many Foundation scholarships consider financial need when selecting recipients and require that you have applied for financial aid through FAFSA. Including your financial information makes it possible to be considered for more scholarships.
All the information in your application is confidential.
