You should start the application process as soon as possible. This will allow you enough time to acquire all necessary documents, contact your referees or recommenders, and complete all forms. Have everything organized and planned to avoid any last-minute complications.


Keep your grades up

Academic excellence is always an attractive feature of any scholarship. Maintain above-average grades. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required yet those who have higher GPAs stand a better chance. Keep a good record to qualify for any scholarship. Grades will be an indicator of how dedicated and serious you are and will make you stand out amongst other applicants.


Choice of references and early notifications

Your references or recommenders must be those who know you well enough to be willing to speak to your abilities and demonstrate why you make the perfect candidate for this scholarship. So, choose them wisely. Also, contact them and send them the required forms very early on to allow them enough time to complete them.


Find an ACEC member firm

Preference will be given to those who have worked in a Council member firm in the last 24 months. As early as possible, apply to one of these firms.
