The student must also supply documentation of their most recent college entrance level standardized test score (ACT or SAT).

In addition to these requirements, applicants must complete an essay question with a maximum of 500 words. Additional information on the requirements and the application for the scholarship may be found on the SOY Scholarship Web page (www.soygrowers.com/soy).
