How do I apply for a direct scholarship?
The process for applying for direct scholarships is the same as for regular entries. In the student’s Awards account, there is a step in the work upload process titled Opt In to a Scholarship. Here, the student can click a checkbox indicating which scholarship they want their work to be considered for, and add a personal statement on why they are applying (50 words minimum). The entry deadline for scholarships is the same as the deadline in your region.
