    Are these awards open for persons applying to Canadian JD programs or is it strictly American JD programs only?

    I would assume only American seeing as the link with full details specifies it is open to students pursuing an American JD.

    I was hoping it was available for Canadian JD programs too :(

    Hi @NNNNJJJJ, 7Sage Consultant here--you can list someone that you would be able to use as a reference--they could be a professional reference, a mentor, or whomever you think could best attest to the information you're including.

    Hi, just a follow-up question, I was wondering gor the 'someone who might be able to verify some of this information', which information is this referring to. The financial aspect or more one's background and mission?

    Hi @yayu.zheng, thank you for your question! You can anticipate that winners would be announced a few weeks after the application deadline.

    Hi @inioluwa.ade, thank you for your question! It would be best to use a reference that has knowledge about multiple aspects of your candidacy. Use your best judgment!
