You’ll need to provide your CTE/Professional-Technical educator with this form and ensure they return it to you in time to upload to your WAVE application. Don’t wait! This helps verify your scholarship eligibility and your application won’t be reviewed without it.

    You’ll also want to request Letters of Recommendation right away. You will find detailed instructions in the WAVE Pre-application. Two recommendation letters are required. These need to be part of your complete scholarship application by the March 17 deadline…so get going!
