  8. Linda McKeown says:

    Our daughter is 17, and a senior in high school. She has already been accepted to attend a VA university for the 2016-2017 school year. She will not turn 18 until August. Does this eliminate her from being eligible to apply?

  9. TJ says:

    Have her apply Linda!

  10. Frankie Gonzalez says:

    I am planning to go back to college for my Master’s degree. I am a seasonal truck driver and my father and grandfather are truck drivers. Does this make me eligible to apply?

  11. TJ says:

    You bet!

  12. Ren says:

    Just curious, is this scholarship renewable every year after you have won it, or does one need to reapply for it year after year?

  13. TJ says:

    you need to re-apply!

  14. Rebecca Hall says:

    I have a highschool senior that will be attending Le Tourneau University next year. She has a 3.67 weighted GPA and will be graduating in May of 2017. However, she will only be 16 when she does graduate and begin college in the fall. Does your age restrictions apply even if she is a graduating senior?

  15. TJ says:

    Have her apply anyway!
