Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

Because the competition includes professional interviews, we encourage students to dress anywhere from business casual to business professional. A good rule is to wear what you would to a job interview.

Who selects the winners?

A council of faculty members from different departments and programs will interview students, lead the roundtable discussions, evaluate the writing samples, and determine the recipients of the award.

Who do I contact with additional questions?

With questions about the scholarship, please contact Dr. Jon Blandford, Associate Professor of English and Director of the Honors program, at jblandford@bellarmine.edu or 502.272.7404. With questions about the competition, please contact Alyssa Rosen, Senior Admission Counselor, at arosen@bellarmine.edu or 502.272.7913.
