- Welcome to the Blount Scholars Program Online Application. Although we accept applications as long as seats in the entering class remain, we encourage all applicants to apply by December 15th for priority consideration. Because the application form has no provision for saving your work, you may want to write your answers in a word processing program and then copy them into the form fields. Not trying to get in your biness or anything, just a thought.
The application has three sections:
- Section One - Pedestrian but nonetheless necessary biographical data--name, contact information, GPA & test scores, etc.
- Section Two - In which we try to get to know the person behind the myth. This might include: querying you about your preferences, passions, prejudices, and peeves; asking you to inhabit hypothetical scenarios or imaginary worlds; having you write a little poem; requiring you to translate a prose passage from Iriquois into Urdu.
Ok, the thing about the translation was a gag. We do ask you to solve some differential equations, though.
Ok, the differential equations bit was a gag too. Loosen up, will you?
- Section Three - Wherein we wax curious about how you see yourself fitting into the Blount Program.
