    Get organized by making a list of:

    • Scholarship(s) for which you plan to apply.
    • Documents to gather and include as part of each scholarship application.

    Required documents may include:

    • A letter of recommendation
    • Proof of enrollment
    • NOCE education plan or course schedule

    Contact your instructor(s), NOCE staff member(s), or employer(s) to request letter(s) of recommendation.

  • Write One Essay for Each Scholarship

    Create an essay document and write one essay for each scholarship for which you will apply.

    • Review the essay prompts included in the drop-down description found under each scholarship listed on the Type of Scholarships webpage
