  •          A resume
  •          An essay
  •          A portfolio detailing projects, service and what makes the applicant special; video and digital images are welcome

There’s also plenty of social time and fun at Scholarship Challenge while participants meet students and faculty, tour the campus and learn what it is like to be a Pioneer.

Scholarship Challenge participants typically have at least a 3.75 GPA or a 27 ACT or 1200 SAT score. Applications are due January 12, 2017. All details are at mnu.edu/undergraduate/scholarship-challenge.
