Qualifications for the applicants who are eligible for the Geneva College Scholarship Competition in general include: a GPA of 3.5 or higher, an SAT score of at least 1300, and/or an ACT score of 29 or higher.

The essay question for participants is: What does the concept of “calling:” mean to you, as an individual and as part of the Kingdom of God? How do you believe Geneva College can help you identify and pursue your calling? The length is 500-750 words.
The essay is due by January 20, 2010. E-mail submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Students must personally attend the scholarship competition in order to be considered.
