Q. I've already attended a Basic class but none of the others. Can I register for the full-ride scholarship?
A. Yes, you can. If you are a winner at the end of the period and receive one of the three scholarships, you will receive a
refund for the Basic class you previously attended.
Q. I want to apply for the scholarship but I want to take the next Basic class. Can I attend and still be eligible?
A. Yes, all pilots who wish to attend a Basic class whilst being registered for the full-ride scholarship may do so. At the end
of the period, if you are a winner, you will be refunded for the Basic class.
Q. I've attended several of Agony's classes, am I still eligible for the scholarship?
A. The scholarship is intended for those who are just experiencing the wealth of knowledge that is PVP-U, and for that
reason I have to limit the eligible persons to those who have taken a maximum of two classes: Basic and Wolfpack.
Anyone who has attended more than those two are, unfortunately, ineligible for the scholarship.
Q. For the qualifications, do I have to complete all of the first set and write an essay?
A. Not at all, the essay is an option for the pilot who doesn't want to take their time with the easier qualifications. You may
choose to complete the essay or complete the tasks above it. The essay prompt is also subject to change at the
request of the person who chooses to write it (though who wants to write an essay about a game?)
Q. I noticed that there are two tasks involving roams. Are they required?
A. The roams are not required, though it is recommended that you attend at least one of them (it is looked upon favorably!)
Q. When will we know we've successfully registered for the scholarship?
A. The registered entrants list is updated at least once a day, but only with the names of those who follow all instructions! If
you have a question about why you're not on the entrants list, you can PM Jeremiah Cole.
Q. I've completed all of my qualifications and submitted them, what do I do now?
A. Once you've submitted all your qualifications and received an acknowledgement from Jeremiah Cole, just be patient. The
program goes until January 5th, 2014 @ 0:00 EVE and the winners will be announced the following day.
Q. So to be clear, multiple people can be contestants and of the contestants that complete all the
qualifications, three will be chosen as winners of the scholarship?
A. That's exactly it! While it's not necessary to complete all qualifications, it certainly does help (if you catch my drift.)
