As a reminder, the Academic Scholarship application is due at the end of January and the Technical School application is due the end of February.
Those seen a long time off, but they will be here sooner than you imagine. With the requirements for recommendation letter and your personal letter, the time is much shorter than it seems.
There is not an issue with having the application in before the deadline, only if it is after.
Good luck and get that application done and submitted.
