I'm definitely applying for this scholarship. Hopefully I win, but whatever happens, happens. I am curious, however, to know if the 1,000-word limit has any exceptions, such as if all of the information does not fit the criteria. Does anybody have the answer? If so, please comment and help me understand. Thank you.
