What is contained in the FRCC Foundation scholarship application?
The FRCC Foundation scholarship application will ask students a series of questions in order to determine their eligibility for various scholarships. We ask that students answer the questions honestly and to the best of their ability. We understand that some questions, such as enrollment status for the upcoming year, may be challenging to determine so far in advance. As such, we ask students to answer based on what their intended plans are. Additionally, the application requires students to submit two letters of recommendation along with an essay.

Who should students ask for letters of recommendation?
Letters of recommendation can come from a multitude of sources. Students are encouraged to ask for letters of recommendation from sources who know the students well. Some suggestions would be from a current, or former, employer, a current academic instructor, a mentor etc. but should not come from a family member. Letters of recommendation should come from sources who know the student well and can speak to why they would be a good candidate to receive a scholarship.

How and when do you ask someone to write a letter of recommendation?
It is advisable to give someone 3-4 weeks minimum to write a letter of recommendation. When asking for letters of recommendation, asking in person, through email or by phone is always best. Be sure to use professional and appreciative language when making the request.

What are the FRCC Foundation scholarship essay requirements?
The FRCC Foundation essay question will be available by December 1st, 2015. The essay should be two, double-spaced pages maximum and should answer the questions thoroughly. The essay portion is the most important part of the application process.
