Notes about the HU Lee Scholarship App Process:  Attention graduating seniors and college students. I need to make some points about the HU Lee scholarship Process. Number one when you apply apply please do it at least a month before the deadline; and keep a full copy of what you submitted; be sure to check both boxes if you qualify for national and regional scholarships — they will only consider the one you check; if you’re approved after you start college you must immediately send proof that you actually are in college for them to release the funds; lastly if you got denied or accepted you are free to apply every year while you’re still in college if you are an active ATA member. If you have any questions as you contemplate applying this winter for next year scholarship please ask in plenty of time.


Thanks for reading - as always simply click reply to ask questions.  

To your success,

Chief Master "Candidate" Corina Black a/k/a Master Black
