Summertime submissions are due Saturday, July 31! Applications for financial aid are accepted on an ongoing basis, but there are cutoff dates for each award cycle. Applicants can apply again if they wish to join a new organization and an award wasn’t granted in a previous award cycle. In addition to other requirements, like letters of recommendation, an essay written by the applicant is also required. Each applicant must submit a one-page essay about what sports means to them and why they’re deserving of financial aid. This essay is challenging, because we ask applicants to talk about themselves, so here are five essay writing tips for your Caris Sports Foundation application.
These five essay writing tips will put your essay over the top. Remember, have fun writing your essay! Reading applicants’ essays is one of our founders’ favorite parts about this process – it gives them the opportunity to learn more about the athletes in their community, their hopes, and their dreams.
