HELPFUL TIPS:
- Be sure your essays is a total of 500 words or less (250 per question)
- Answer both essay questions on one document
- Be sure your essay addresses / answers the provided essay questions in a clear, thoughtful, and organized manner
- Double-check your essays for grammar, punctuation, and spelling
- Make sure the document is in the mandatory file for upload (.doc, .docx, .rtf)
- Grammar is important! Did you spellcheck your document or ask someone to proofread it?
- Please DO NOT include any personal information on your essay document (name, school, etc.). This information was included through your application form and should not be included in your essay.

If I receive a scholarship, how will the money be applied to my tuition?
iModules will make a direct payment to your institution and ensure it is properly applied to your tuition.

If I receive a scholarship, will I receive a check or cash?
Scholarship recipients will not receive the scholarship money directly. iModules will send your school a check made out to the school. You will be asked to provide contact and deadline information for your school's admission department if you are chosen as a scholarship recipient.

If I am not chosen as a scholarship recipient, will I receive feedback on my essay?
Each year, we receive more than 1,000 essays. The essays undergo an anonymous review process with our scholarship committee before final decisions are rendered. Due to the complex - and anonymous - nature of the review system, we are unable to provide specific feedback or reasons why an essay was not selected.

How and when will I find out if I am a scholarship recipient?
Recipients will be notified by email and phone and will be listed on the Scholarship Recipients page of this site by May 1, 2017.
