We want to know your thoughts on benevolence. The creator of this scholarship program put great
importance upon the idea that giving back is one of the most important things a person can do in life.

Benevolent is an adjective used to describe people that are kind, caring, and give back to their community
and humankind. To have a benevolent spirit means that you are a caring person, that you make giving
back to the community a part of your life. Using this idea of benevolent please tell us in your own words
about a time that you were benevolent in your community. This could be as an individual or within your
church, school, or other organization. On a separate page, please write an essay on the above topic, you
are limited to about 500 words. Once complete you will upload the essay below.

Question Title

* 48. Letters of Recommendation

You need to provide the scholarship committee with two letters of recommendation. There are detailed letters at the end of this application you can print and give to each reference. You may choose whomever you would like to write these letters but we suggest that you choose two people
who know you well and can easily write about your character, your academic abilities or your benevolence. They should be able to tell us about how receiving a college degree will benefit you and the greater community.

A few helpful things to consider:
-At least one of the letters should be from a person at your school; the principal, a teacher or coach, a guidance counselor.
-The second might be from a religious or civic leader. You may want to avoid fellow students. If you use an employer, make certain that they know the nature of the recommendation, so they don't just provide a job reference.

Letters MUST BE SIGNED, they MUST be on appropriate letterhead that helps the committee understand your relationship to the reference.

Reference Letters not meeting these guidelines will cause the application to be disqualified. Letters must be received by March 15, 2021, to be considered

The Letters of Recommendation may be mailed to:

Scholarship Committee
Sunnyside Ministry
