Paul Tulane Essay Prompts

Just in case people interested in the DHS award missed it (unlikely since it is mentioned in the same sentence as the DHS on the Tulane Scholarships page) Tulane now has a new full tuition scholarship, the Paul Tulane Award. There will be 50 of these awarded, so that makes the total number of full tuition merit awards 125 (or maybe 126, I was never clear as to whether the Hainkel is a special version of a DHS for Louisiana residents, or an additional award besides the 75 DHS winners). That is a lot of full tuition awards, about 8% of each freshman class.

Unlike the DHS, there is not a project involved, but instead 2 relatively short essays selected from 4 very different topics. Rather similar to the famous University of Chicago essay questions required for all applicants. I would assume the criteria for winning, besides the creativity shown in the essays, are similar strong grades and test scores.
