The Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus will be awarding ten $1000 college scholarships.
To apply, applicants must have a 2.5 grade point average.
They must write a 250-word essay on their academic plans and career goals.
And they must write another 250-word essay about, to quote the formal process established by the group, “…why you admire your state representative.”
That’s right: to win a scholarship awarded by state representatives applicants must write a brief essay explaining why they admire their state representative.
Nope: no false modesty here.
