How to ace the NYWICI Scholarship

1

Ensure that you are enrolled full-time

The scholarship is designed for studies in the communication field. Therefore, make sure that you are pursuing or have been accepted to pursue a degree in a communications-related field at a recognized college or university in the United States. The areas of study in the communications field include advertising, film, journalism, communications, broadcasting, public relations, publishing, digital media, and English.

2

Ask your supervisor to write second recommendation

Two letters of recommendation are required for the scholarship application. If you are an employee or volunteer, you will have to get a reference letter from your supervisor. Applicants who participate in athletics can get their letters from their coach. If you take classes or courses outside, you should consider getting a recommendation from the instructor.

Review your application before submission

After filling out your application, do not submit it immediately. Check whether you have the necessary supporting documents. You can also cross-check every detail you have provided in the online form and attach your application documents before submission.
