University Studies Mentor Program Application Hints and Tips

Apply early! The General University Scholarship application is used by many programs, and it is lengthy. Be sure to get an early start!

Be sure to "save"! If you haven't finished your application and you do not "save" before you exit the application, your work will not be saved and you will have to start over again.

Remember to select "Review Answers and Submit" at the end of your application!
