What went through your mind when you applied for the scholarship?

I got to know of the scholarship in my first semester of college back in 2019.

It wasn’t an aim that I actively pursued; it was mostly stored at the back of my mind.

I started to actively consider the idea during June when applications opened.

For a few days I deliberated and after a week, I decided to contact my professors and get the documents and written application ready.

I had to submit four letters of reference along with my two statements (academic and personal), transcript, etc.
