Could someone tell me if that's correct? What I meant to say is that I'd like to know the last day when I could apply for Admission and for the Scholarships at a school (There are 2 different forms, one for the Admissions and another for the Scholarships).

"Good evening! I would like to know the applications deadline regarding the Scholarships and Admissions."

  • Could you please tell me the deadlines for scholarship and admissions applications? – user27471 Dec 9 '15 at 23:03
  • Wow, Johnny! That's exactly what I was trying to write! Thanks a lot for the answer! – Igor Ogawa Dec 9 '15 at 23:09

To keep the sentence in its current form:

I would like to know the application deadlines regarding scholarship and admissions.

Assuming there is only one scholarship (as you seem to state), use the singular.

Deadlines (plural) is used since there are different deadlines for scholarship and for admissions. If scholarship and admission was a single application (idea/entity), the singular deadline would be used.

Please advise what the admission and scholarship deadlines are.

Would be another way of asking the same question.

  • Yes, that would be fine, you may also want to check if the deadlines are the same for each scholarship, they could vary sometimes. Good luck! – Peter Dec 9 '15 at 23:24
