    - Be between the ages of 16 and 25 at the time of application.
    - Have a high school diploma, GED or be a high school senior if applying for undergraduate or vocational training.
    - Have a college degree or be a college senior if applying for graduate school.
    - Submit at least one letter of recommendation, a personal essay and their most current transcripts.
    - Submit documentation of their parents’ accident.

    The applicant’s academic achievement, aptitude, extracurricular activities, financial need and community service will be considered.

    The scholarship is intended for any accredited institution recognized by the United States Department of Education.
