To upload documents into the CEF Scholarship Application, you must first convert your Word document to a .pdf (Adobe's Portable Document Format). If you do not have Adobe's software installed on your computer, allowing you to create a .pdf directly, you can use one of several free on-line .pdf converters. A link to one of these sites is listed below. You can also request your transcript from Mrs. Pacalo in the CHS counseling Office in .pdf format. Mrs. Pacalo will e-mail a .pdf of your transcript to you, and you can then upload this document where indicated in the on-line application form.
