Applicants must be high school seniors with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 to 3.2 on a 4.0 scale who will graduate at the end of the 2013-14 school year . Applicants must also be U.S. citizens, be planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate study for the 2014-15 academic year and demonstrate financial need.
