To apply, you must be a senior in high school. It would help if you have read the book Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, but that is not a requirement. You should be pursuing an education at a university, technical college, or community college, but the degree you work for will not matter. As long as you maintain a full-time education status during your first year in school, you could receive this award.
If you want to apply, you will need to write a letter to a person you know that explains how he or she influenced your life. This letter should highlight the themes in Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, which is why it may be nice to read the book before you apply. Turn in your essay online, along with a short application form on the website. Then all you have to do is wait for a response from the scholarship committee. There are other awards available from the same organization, so check out your options and see what works out for you in the end.
