Hi,
Just wondering if anyone is applying for the black heat foundation scholarship or had applied.

Any tips on what to include in the 1200 word requirement?

Hi,

I'm currently planning on applying. I've been doing research and the guidelines are pretty vague and there isn't any sort of clear pattern between scholars.
I feel like for the essay you need to outline a strong career plan and how it wouldn't be possible without funding from them. Then there's the how does it fit in line with the foundation's aims part.

Have you managed to find anything else about the scholarship?

hi both

i've sent in my application today after spending weeks drafting my essay and giving it to scholars to critique... ended up attaching the wrong one to the email LOL

what you want to do is set out what you want the scholarship for, and then link it to the aims of the foundation (broadening access to disadvantaged students, etc), and also present a case of financial need - WHY do you need the scholarship. advice given to me by ibz mo was DON'T be afraid to present a sob story - state all the facts about your circumstances. also make sure you specify what the scholarship would allow you to do. he also said that there may be an interview. also attach the other forms that they tell you to

Does anyone know how we will be notified of their decision, i.e., letter or email? I saw on their Instagram that they have selected 50 scholars last week, but I am not sure if it was for this round's of applications or December's.

I'm not sure how we will be contacted. But I just sent off my application; in the confirmation email it says that application between 1st Dec and 28th Feb are currently being reviewed. So i'm assuming that the people they just announced applied before that.

Thank you. The waiting is killer since a few of us applied early in this quarter. I think a timeframe for when applicants will receive decision for each quarter's applications would be immensely beneficial. Good luck to ya'll.

"Please supply any financial statements and supporting financial documentation as part of your application"

I provided financial statements as proof of financial need in my application. If you have other proof that you desperately need this scholarship, include them as well.
