Toyota Scholars - 2006 to 2008

<p>How many semifinalists do they select? How many finalists?</p>

<p>I believe its 100... 2 from each state</p>

<p>Hehe...semifinalist! I'm really really surprised :)</p>

<p>It's 100 finalists, not two per state though I think. It said that it does it on a regional basis. So, I'm assuming there's a certain number per region. You can find out what other state(s) are in your region by looking at the nomination form and where it asks you for your region code.</p>

<p>I was looking at posts from 2 years ago and they said that there were about 11,000 applicants, 1000 semifinalists, and 100 finalists. So, I guess we still have a decent shot.</p>

<p>I think there are 88 Regional Finalists (10000/year) and 12 National Finalists (20000/year)</p>

<p>I got the notification after school today.</p>

<p>Do they notify the people who didn't make it at the same time they notify the semifinalists?</p>

<p>If there is a conflict and either A) You go late to the finalist reception (May 11-13) or B) You can't go at all, would they retract your scholarship? </p>

<p>BTW, Congrats to all the semifinalists and best of luck!</p>

<p>Ditto to FFsoul's question, if you can't go to the finalists convention, will they take away your award?</p>

<p>I just realized that there are two addresses in the on the letter informing you of your status, and another on the back of the questionnaire....</p>

<p>So how many people get to be semi-finalists?</p>

<p>looking - you're right . . . does anyone know which address we're supposed to use?</p>

<p>Maybe that's how they narrow down the finalists...send it to the wrong address and you're out, send it to the right address and congratulations!</p>


<p>The addresses on the travel form and questionnaire are the same the purpose of having us write a few sentences on the back of the travel sheet to allow them to identify who's who?</p>

<p>Hey, I'm a finalist too! How exciting...I need the money...</p>


<p>I'm a semifinalist and very confused about the mailing address. I called the number and the machine said that the Trenton, NJ address is for overnight mail and Federal express since this cant be sent to a P.O. box. </p>

<p>What address are you guys sending the questionaire and travel form to?</p>

<p>When did you guys get the semi-finalist notice? I think I read on the little notecard that they sent out in Jan that they will not contact you if you were not selected. I didn't really expect to make semi-finalist but I still managed to beat out a bunch of other people to represent my high school. I just wish that I had made it a little further.</p>

<p>I got it about a week ago, in the middle of February</p>

<p>anything new with the 2 addresses?</p>

<p>I think I want to shoot all scholarships: why do they all want us to write about half a million different little things? I spent waaay too much time on the semifinalist app for Coca-Cola, and didn't make finals, and so I am a bit reluctant to spend the time. Too bad I must get money or I can't go to the school I want.</p>
