    Hello, this webpage and the application website say that the scholarship is open to all high school students, college students, and grad school students without specifying a year. However, the rules (https://www.myscholarship.app/node/28#overlay-context=dixiebellepaintscholarship) say that of all high school students, only seniors are eligible.

    Could you clarify if high school students who aren’t seniors can apply to this scholarship?

    Good evening,

    Is this scholarship strictly applicable to tuition? I will be attending community college full-time next fall, so I will commute daily and was wondering if I can apply it towards car expenses (insurance, gasoline, repairs etc.)?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Lucy, the scholarship is only for tuition as it is sent directly to the school.

  23. Jada Chambers says:

    Just in case , I have submitted my entry again – to be on the safe side!

  29. Erika says:

    Hi! I read that poems
    are allowed in place of an essay. Would you also allow other creative formats like a comic strip which addresses the essay prompt? Or could some sort of visual art be included with an essay?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hello Erika, that is a very creative idea! Unfortunately the submission form only allows for text entry and does not seem to accommodate photos.
