CTE scholarships are competitive. CTE scholarships and awards are based on total points, and every point counts. Make every effort to respond to each prompt to the best of your ability. Distinguish yourself from your peers by highlighting your experiences that helped you prepare for college-level study in your chosen career.
Strong scores are usually the result of some degree of discussion and reflection prior to filling out the application. Your response must be your original work. Consider developing a few rough drafts and having a parent, teacher, or school counselor review them and provide feedback prior to completing the scholarship application.
The highest scores are given to applicants whose responses contain multiple, directly related examples. The content of each response will strongly support the applicant’s qualifications for a scholarship. Responses will be clearly written and concise. A professional tone and style will be evident in your writing. Content that is unstructured, disjointed, or contains pervasive errors in mechanics, usage, spelling, and/or grammar will not score well.
Prior to filling out the CTE Scholarships and Tuition Awards application, please review the application questions that will require more consideration when filling out the application.
