About Your Application in ScholarshipUniverse
This is a direct award scholarship. That means you don’t need to do anything else, like write an essay or request a letter of recommendation. By answering a few questions, you get added to the pool of students being considered for the SEA Education Scholarship.

Unfortunately, students don’t have access to see them. We have put in a request with ScholarshipUniverse to change that. Hopefully by next year it will be available to you to see.
