But wait…there’s more?

Grammarly Premium can give you very helpful feedback on your writing. Passive voice can be fixed by Grammarly, and it can handle classical word-choice mistakes. It can also help with inconsistencies such as switching between e-mail and email or the U.S.A. and the USA.

It can even help when you wanna refine ur slang or formality level. That’s especially useful when writing for a broad audience ranging from businessmen to friends and family, don’t you think? It’ll inspect your vocabulary carefully and suggest the best word to make sure you don’t have to analyze your writing too much.

  • A letter from their school counselor; or
  • A photo or letter showing their free/reduced lunch status; or
  • A photo or other copy of a student aid report confirming income; or
  • A photo or other copy of a parent’s or legal guardian’s filed federal tax form.

If a potential winner cannot be contacted as provided hereinafter the first attempt to contact them, if they fail to sign and return any Required Documentation by the timeline as requested by the Sponsor, which shall in no event be later than April 30, 2021, or if a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, which decision shall be based on the Sponsor’s sole discretion, the potential winner forfeits the prize.

7. DISBURSEMENT.

Students selected to receive scholarship funds (“Winners”) must indicate a Title IV eligible institution (“Institution”) for disbursement by the Sponsor. The winner must indicate the Institution to Sponsor at least 60 calendar days before the beginning of their first semester at the Institution as indicated by Institution. The sponsor will never disburse scholarship funds or monies directly to the Winner; it will disburse scholarship funds only to Institutions. In cases where, before full disbursement, a Winner (i) changes or transfers to a new Institution, (ii) defers enrollment, or (iii) ceases attending or leave the Institution for any reason, the Winner shall promptly notify Sponsor of such change in their enrollment at the Institution, which shall be no later than five (5) business days after such change has been notified to the applicable Institution. Upon receipt of notification, in case of (i), Sponsor shall disburse any remaining scholarship funds to the new Institution provided it is a Title IV eligible institution; and in case of (ii) and (iii), Winner shall have 12 months (or 36 months in the case the reason for such deferral or leave is to enlist in the military) to notify Sponsor of their enrollment at a new Title IV eligible Institution (together with reasonable proof of such enrollment and, in the case of a military-related deferral or leave, documentation of the applicable military service) or the Winner will forfeit the remainder of the scholarship. Furthermore, even if a Winner enrolls in a Title IV eligible Institution earlier than their cohort, the scholarship funds will be disbursed to the applicable Institution at the same time as the rest of the cohort. Sponsors may use a third-party vendor, such as Scholarship America, for the disbursement and associated administrative support.

11. RELEASE OF LIABILITY.

By participating, each entrant (and, if a minor, their parent or legal guardian) agrees to release, discharge, and hold harmless Sponsor (and advertising and promotion agencies), and the respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, and representatives of the foregoing (collectively, “Released Parties”) from any injuries, liability, losses, and damages of any kind to persons, including death, or property resulting, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from student’s participation in the Scholarship Program or any Scholarship Program-related activity or the acceptance, possession, use, or misuse of any awarded prize.
