Prior to accessing the on-line application, a student should prepare the following materials: • Essay Responses. Please prepare written answers to the following questions. We recommend compiling answers into a separate document before entering them into the on-line application. This will ensure your responses are saved on multiple platforms, as answers entered in the on-line application are not saved until they are submitted. • A brief letter of support from a teacher or community member. • A highschool or college transcript (which ever is most recent). Unofficial transcripts are acceptable. • Up to date contact information, including e-mail, mailing addresses, and phone number. • Optional: Additional documents demonstrating your commitment to labor or Labor Studies, such as a resume or curriculum vitae, may also be submitted.
