Scholarship Submission Instruction Page
The scholarship application is divided into two parts, “A” & “B.” There is a unique "Part-A" for each scholarship."Part-
A" is mostly informational, but can contain an additional form(s) that must be filled out and returned - depending on the
scholarship. Only return "Part-A" if there are extra pages.
"Part-B" of each scholarship application remains the same. You must change the drop down box to
correctly identify the scholarship for which you are applying on "Part-B." Each scholarship that you apply for must also
have a "Part-B" to accompany it.
Starting this year, "Part-A" and "Part-B" application forms are in save-able Adobe PDF forms, meaning you can fill them
out and save them to your computer. You can then attach and eMail completed forms to the PEF. If applying for more than
one scholarship, you can save copies of Part-B and change the scholarship drop-down for each one.
If you plan to eMail your application(s), please send one (1) eMail per application package. If, for example, you apply for
three (3) different scholarships, send three (3) different eMail messages to the PEF - each one containing attachments for
Part-A (if required) and Part-B. You must continue to mail unofficial transcripts as well as letters of recommendations to
the PEF. Your eMail application file names should adhere to the following file naming rules:
Attachment File Name Rules
Example: If your name is Jane Doe with student number 12345, and you are applying for the Southern Nevada Sports Hall
of Fame scholarship, your "Part-A" and "Part-B" filenames should read as follows:
Since scholarship names can be long, shorten the number of letters you use in your filename.
Email Address: email@example.com
Mailed Hard Copies (NOT REQUIRED)
As a "green" initiative, we encourage you to eMail your completed application(s) as attachments. We recognize that you
will still be mailing your unofficial transcripts as well as letters of recommendation, or you may choose to drop them off
directly to the PEF. Your scholarship will not be presented to the donor if you do not have all of the required documents
for each application.
If you need to mail paper copies of your application(s), please put multiple applications in one flat envelope, separating
each application with a paperclip. Do not fold or staple your application. If you submit multiple applications, include
enough copies of your transcripts, resumes, and letters of recommendation, etc. All documents submitted should be printed
on single-sided, standard-size (8 ½" by 11") paper.
Additional documents such as transcripts and letters of recommendation must be included with the rest of your application
and NOT sealed in separate envelopes. Unofficial-unsealed transcripts and letters of recommendation are acceptable.
Documents must be submitted in the same order as listed on page two (2) of the application. Folders, report covers, etc.
used to submit your application will be discarded.
