Applications

To apply, students should complete an essay that tells us about themselves and their plans for the future. There is no length requirement for the essay, but students should be sure to explain:

(i) what types of activities, coursework, etc., they participated in or enjoyed in high school,

(ii) what they plan to study and do after high school,

(iii) what career they plan to pursue and why,

(iv) any life challenges they may have experienced,

(v) any financial need they may have, and

(vi) anything else that helps us understand who they are, where they're going, and how our scholarship will help them get there.

 

Please note that grammar and spelling are taken into consideration when applications are reviewed, so be sure to proofread your essay.

 

Students must email their essay in Word or PDF format to maresfoundation@gmail.com. Essays should include the student's name and high school at the top of each page.
