You can download complete instructions at the Beta Phi Mu Xi Chapter Scholarship page:
The full details are online, but briefly, the $250 scholarship will be awarded based on the following criteria:

2). Completion of at least 21 credits in the UH Manoa Library and Information Science Program
3). Cover letter, stating your GPA, details of your service to fellow LIS students, such as leadership in Hui Dui, ALA-SC, SLA/ASIS&T, HASL, AHA, the Web Team or similar, and reasons why you qualify for this scholarship
4). Two letters of recommendation: the first from an LIS instructor, emphasizing scholarship and research abilities and the second from a library job, internship, or volunteer supervisor stating your leadership potential, commitment to Hawai’i, and service to the profession, the UHM LIS Program, UHM LIS students, or your community.
