Applications for the 2023 EKO Scholarship are accepted beginning February 1, 2023. The application deadline is Wednesday, May 31st.
To submit your application, follow these steps:
- Complete the application form.
- Tell us about yourself. You can do this by writing an essay of no more than 750 words, or through a creative project. You can use any medium you like to express yourself - music, visual art, a recorded performance, a short story. Whichever you choose, this is your chance to show us why you are a good fit for the EKO Scholarship. You can tell us about someone who has inspired you, whether that’s someone you know, a historical figure or a fictional character. You might describe your career goals and plans for your future, or what impact the scholarship will have for you.
- Provide a letter from the EKO organization where you received services verifying that you were a client.
- Submit two letters of recommendation from people who know you. This could be a teacher, a friend, a relative, someone you’ve worked with…someone you feel will help us get to know more about you.
Applications must be filled out completely – unfortunately, we cannot accept incomplete applications.
