Applicants Can Apply for ONE Category
Connecticut Association of REALTORS® Foundation is proud to once again provide two categories of Raymond F. Gates, Jr. Memorial Scholarships. The first category is based primarily on "Academic Excellence" (academic factors). The second category is based on "Scholastic Achievement" (academic performance) along with extracurricular considerations (i.e. volunteer work, civic activity, etc.). This second category also requires an applicant to submit a short essay.
In order to help you decide which category is appropriate for you, the following are suggested guidelines:
Academic Excellence Suggested Guidelines:
- Minimum B+ Grade Point Average
- Minimum 24 ACT Score
- Minimum 1200 Combined SAT Score (for tests taken prior to March 2005 and March 2016 or later) or
Minimum 1800 Combined SAT Score (for tests taken between March 2005 and February 2016)
Scholastic Achivement Suggested Guidelines:
- Minimum C Grade Point Average
- Minimum 20 ACT Score
- Minimum 900 Combined SAT Score (for tests taken prior to March 2005 and March 2016 or later) or
Minimum 1400 Combined SAT Score (for tests taken between March 2005 and February 2016)
These are truly intended as guidelines to determine which category you most likely fall within. The "pool" of applicants varies each year and, as applicants are judged against each other rather than against any specific criteria, you should not let these guidelines inhibit you from applying for a scholarship in the category of your choice.
