- Describe their goals and how a post-secondary education will help them achieve those goals in a well-written essay; have a verifiable history of voting (any party, any candidate), if eligible;
- Volunteer to serve the community;
- Attend Montgomery College or the University of Maryland system at the Universities at Shady Grove.
