As the year comes to a close, Cmolik has invited twenty new students into our tight-knit community. Each individual had demonstrated resilience in the face of adversity, given back to their community, and clearly indicated their educational goals through their concentration and dedication, demonstrating potential and undeniably earning their place within the Cmolik scholarship community.
The application process begins with a written application form in which students are asked questions illustrating their encounters with adversity and how they chose to approach these hardships. If selected, they are invited in for an interview where they are asked to go into more detail around themes mentioned within the written application. Supposing that the individual is selected after the interview, the student becomes a part of the Cmolik family!
Cmolik scholarships are unique to others as they not only provide students with financial support, they provide students with a community. Students are paired with a mentor, someone who is there to provide students with guidance to success. Mentors are there to encourage, advise and support students. The Cmolik foundation additionally hosts regular events to connect students with one another and further build our close-knit community.
To any future students interested in applying, this scholarship is an opportunity you do not want to miss out on—make sure to get your application submitted by February 15 of 2019!
