If we are currently accepting applications, a “Start” button will appear below and will give you access to our eligibility quiz. It will help you determine whether you fall within our guidelines as described above.

Step Two: Online Application
The application has complete instructions regarding how to complete it. We will collect two names of individuals who have agreed to write you a letter of recommendation and they will receive a private link to the online recommendation form. The Anna M. Vincent Scholarship Trust reviews every application that is submitted to us. Each application is scored as it moves its way through our rigorous review process.

Step Three: Personal Interview
Once it has been determined that you have made your way through this initial review process, we ask students with the highest grades and need for financial assistance to attend a personal interview to take place at the offices of BNY Mellon, National Association in Philadelphia.

Step Four: Grant Decisions
You will be notified by email of our decision regarding your scholarship. If you are chosen to receive one of our scholarships, we will ask you for further information regarding where to direct the scholarship within your institution. All scholarships are given directly to the institution and not the applicant.
