Please keep in mind that you can apply for AmCham Scholarship ONCE ONLY. If you have completed and submitted your application, you are not allowed to apply in the following years.
3. ONLINE APPLICATION
What document should I prepare before filling out the online application?
The ONLY required document you need before starting the application is your official GPA certificate. This should be the completed GPA with all grades from the first year. Please scan this file in PDF format. Other optional documents are (1) your English certificate (also in PDF format) if your result is higher than our threshold, and (2) your Certificate (in PDF format) related to your Achievement at school or in the community.
Can I modify my application? If yes, how can?
We strongly encourage that you have everything ready before you start working on the online application, including your GPA, the optional English certificate, and Achievement certificate. Though the system will save your answers as you are filling out the form, and you may log out and return as often as you wish, we encourage that you complete the application in one sitting. Once you have submitted your application, you cannot revise it. If you notice any mistakes, please contact our team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I prepare PDF file for Scholarship Application?
We strongly recommend that you scan your GPA Certificate and the optional English Certificate in PDF format, not in JPEG, PNG, or any other version. This will be the easiest and most convenient method. Please note, during scanning do not let your file become too large or you may have problem with the upload system. However, if your scanner is not available for PDF format, there are a lot of tools to help you convert your JPEG/DOC file into PDF.
***Note: Please note that when converting, always make sure to keep your PDF file as small as possible. We recommend that each file should not exceed 4MB. You can compress your PDF file with the Adobe Acrobat Professional software.
