- a list of your academic honors and community service, as applicable,
- a 500-800 word personal statement summarizing what you’ve learned from your experience in the auction profession and/or what you would do with the scholarship funds (all names or business names that would identify the applicant or their active MSAA member relative should be removed so that the Scholarship Committee is able to review the content of the essay while avoiding any prejudice or bias),
- proof of acceptance or enrollment to a post-secondary degree program (acceptable forms of proof of enrollment include your current course schedule, a current transcript, a current sports roster, or current student ID; an acceptable form of proof of admission is a copy of the acceptance letter/email from the institution), and
