Accessing the Triumphant Founder Pearl Anna Neal Centennial Scholarship Application
Demonstrated financial need is one of the key applicant assessment areas for the Triumphant Founder Pearl Anna Neal Centennial Scholarship. Female high school seniors can indicate financial need and be matched with the Founders’ Scholarship application by selecting “Yes” when asked “Do you qualify for Free or Reduced lunch based upon the U.S. Federal guidelines?” in the Eligibility Quiz.
Zeta National Educational Foundation, Incorporated understands that some schools do not participate in the Federal School Lunch program. The Eligibility Quiz scholarship matching question specifies “qualify” for that reason. Female high school seniors do not have to receive free or reduced fare lunch at the time of application, but they should meet or be within the guidelines to qualify for the program. If you are a female high school senior and can demonstrate financial need by providing specific information requested in the Founders’ Scholarship application (for example, your FAFSA Estimated Family Contribution), you are encouraged to indicate that you qualify for Free or Reduced fare lunch and complete the scholarship application.
