To be eligible for the AKA-EAF Financial Need Graduate Scholarship, applicants must: be currently enrolled full-time (depends on your school’s qualifications) at an accredited degree-granting institution (online and accelerated classes are accepted); plan to continue their academic pursuits in the fall of the grant year; demonstrate exceptional academic achievement/or financial need; have a 2.5 GPA; and value leadership, volunteer, civic and academic services. Awardees will be notified by December.
Applicants must submit the following: a completed online application form; documentation of Project/Research, scholarly pursuit etc. (Two double-spaced, typewritten pages max.); two letters of recommendation (must not be dated earlier than January); official transcripts (open, scan and add as an attachment); Financial Needs Analysis; and a copy of their letter of acceptance (if they are a first-time graduate student). This is a blind process (without knowledge of who the applicant is), to
ensure fairness and objectivity.
