Application Instructions

We will only accept requests for applications that are received directly from the potential student themselves, as this is an indication of initiative which is critical for success in the university.

We ask that any incarcerated student interested in receiving an application send us a request to our mailing address with a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE) enclosed. You may also download and send this form for a currently incarcerated student to fill out and submit of their own.

While we are not currently serving every State in the U.S., we’ll add the Future Scholar to our waiting list. In fact, adding students to this wait-list helps us illustrate demand and secure funding for new locations.
