Application Suggestions

The Huntsman Scholar Program is highly selective. You are in an applicant pool of high performing, highly motivated individuals. You should bear in mind that other applicants will also have outstanding qualifications. Your application should help the reviewers understand why you are worthy of this investment, what your aspirations are, and based on your experiences so far, how you plan to achieve those aspirations. 

Experienced professionals who have hired, developed, and evaluated talent will be reviewing your application. Why should they ‘hire’ you? Convince them you are worth the investment. Authenticity and sincerity, thoughtful and substantive responses, critical thinking based on facts rather than opinions, all go a long way in your responses.
