  • Passion for Supply Chain

    You must show a strong commitment to pursuing a career in the field of business forecasting or supply chain management. We want to know what other ways you’re setting yourself up for long-term success in a supply chain career. Tell us about opportunities you’ve seized on-campus and beyond, like participating in supply chain management associations, classes and internships related to forecasting and supply chain management, and other extracurricular activities in the field.

  • Dedication to Personal Growth

    We’re looking for students who are constantly seeking out opportunities to further develop their skills and character. In your motivational letter, please detail any academic, leadership, volunteer, community, or personal achievements that help define you. We want to hear your story and learn what makes you unique.

  • Financial Need

    Applicants must have financial need to be considered for the scholarship. One of the main goals of this scholarship is to help a hardworking student focus more on their studies and less on making ends meet. A FAFSA is not required to apply; however, in your motivational letter please share how this scholarship will help you attain your end goal of a career in the supply chain field. Consider using your letter to underscore the commitment you have made to pursue your goal of a career in the supply chain field and what you have had to forfeit to continue down your path.

    We are looking for future supply chain leaders, so your major or minor should be in supply chain. You may still qualify if you are majoring in another field, but you must be enrolled (currently or previously) in some supply chain classes and demonstrate a strong passion for and commitment to the supply chain world. If you have not yet declared your major, we will need to see evidence that you have taken or are enrolled in supply chain classes. Explain this connection within your motivational letter.

  • How will I be notified if I am awarded the scholarship?

    Our team will contact recipients by phone and email immediately following the selection. Please make sure to provide valid contact information and verify that it is accurate before submitting your application.

Please address these three areas in a minimum of 500 words and maximum of 750 words. Be creative, tell us about yourself and what inspired you to pursue supply chain!

  • What is considered proof of enrollment?

    We accept a transcript or course list showing the courses you are enrolled for dates that include the current semester (we do not consider GPA during the selection process). We also accept a letter from your college student affairs or admissions office stating that you are enrolled or accepted as a student. This letter must be on official school letterhead, displaying the school’s logo or seal, and it must include the name and phone number of a representative from the admissions office.

  • Can I re-apply if I was not successful in the past?

    As long as you meet all of the criteria, yes, you may re-apply if your previous submission was unsuccessful. If you do re-apply, please do not submit the same application. Instead, think about how to improve upon your last submission and ensure you are aligned with our selection criteria.

  • Any general advice you can provide?

    The greatest piece of advice we can provide is to make sure you address all the criteria outlined above. For example, for someone not majoring in supply chain, it is imperative that you adequately explain how you still qualify. If you are unsure what supply chain is, it is likely that you do not qualify. We also see many applications that don’t address the financial need criteria. Please read this entire page thoroughly and make sure you understand what we are looking for before applying.
