Steps for applying to GSA
Qualifications for successful application to GSA
If you meet the qualifications, the next step is to fill out the Student Application which consists of both an online portion and a paper application. They are described as Parts I and II. If you do not have access to a computer and the Internet, your guidance counselor or another teacher in your school should allow you to use a school computer.
Your counselor may offer to mail your application; however, you are the one who
is ultimately responsible for mailing the entire packet to the West Virginia
Department of Education. It must be postmarked
by the December 16 deadline and mailed to the address
