    Matelich Essay
    When selecting Matelich Scholars, the committee looks for more than academic achievement and potential for intellectual growth. Matelich Scholars are motivated to serve purposes bigger than themselves. Their focused intensity, personal drive, and strong moral compass allow them to be leaders. Even before graduation from high school, they have demonstrated their focus and commitment to improving their communities.

    Please write a 750 word essay that answers the following questions: 
    • How have you demonstrated your personal drive, commitment to your community, and leadership philosophy? Please cite specific leadership roles and activities, but avoid simply summarizing your résumé.
    • How will Puget Sound help you develop your leadership skills and achieve your goals, both in college and beyond?
    Files must be saved as a Microsoft Word document or PDF to be uploaded.
