Ask A Scholar: How Selective is a Point Scholarship

January 13, 2016


A Frequently Asked Question:

"How selective is a Point Foundation Scholarship?"


Point Scholar Brian Kaplun says:

"The process to become a Point Scholar is a very selective one. In the year I applied, Point received nearly 2,000 applications and I was one of only 36 Scholars selected. I had to fill out an online application, submit letters of recommendation, complete a phone-interview, and stand before a committee of about a dozen people during an in-person interview in Los Angeles! It was a difficult but ultimately rewarding process. I recommend that you apply!"
