Application and Scholarship Information
Applicants are asked to compose a narrative essay centered around an individual in their lives who truly embodies the character and wisdom of the selected proverb. This person could be a parent, a role model, or even someone who disregarded the advice of the proverb, leading to a valuable lesson learned. Unfold the story and share the insights gained from this experience. Given that the proverb contains multiple passages with distinct emphases, we ask applicants to select a specific topic within it and focus your essay on that particular aspect, making it the foundation of your narrative.
