Application Components

Short Answer Questions

It is very important for students to complete the short answer questions listed on the application to the best of their ability. We highly encourage for students to write 1-5 sentences per question in this area.

Two Recommendation Letters

Recommendation letters must be completed by, but are not limited to, a teacher, coach, tutor, mentor, or neighbor. It is important that family members, friends, and classmates do not submit a recommendation letter on your behalf.


Please provide current transcripts that identify the students GPA and grades for the most recent quarter or semester. Grades from the previous year can also be submitted if most recent grades are unavailable.

Unique Item

Please provide one unique item that can show the Boost staff what makes you unique. This can be through art pieces, stories, poems, drawings, pictures, etc. The unique submissions will not be returned after the application review process.  Please only submit one item.
