As part of the application process, potential students must submit a portfolio of creative works or productions for review. Entrants must also provide an outline of their own relevant experiences and goals in the audio industry, as well as a statement explaining why they are the best candidate to receive this scholarship. Applicants will then mail entries and related submissions to the SAE campus that they would like to attend. All 41 participating SAE Institute campuses around the world are accepting entries from February 14, 2005 through March 31, 2005.
