Well-roundedness is the key to landing this scholarship. Discus winners pick three areas from this list in which they shine and write up to 750 characters (yep, characters, not words) about why they excel in that field. Students can make their applications shine by adding extra images and video along with their nomination. The best part is that winners are selected monthly, so you will know in 30 days or less whether you made the cut.
