If you meet the requirements, make sure there is a decent shot of actually getting the scholarship. Once you believe that you have a decent shot of going on to be awarded the ACS/PPG Scholars Plus, then it is useful to put forth the effort to apply.
An important part of working toward obtaining the scholarship is filling out the application correctly. Applications can sometimes be drawn-out and tiresome, but take the time to make sure that your work was done precisely and in its entirety. Use caution to insure that you will not miss out as the result of something that could have been avoided.
After filing, figure out the timeframe regarding when the ACS/PPG Scholars Plus chooses a winner and distributes any funds so that you can know if you will be able to count on the scholarship to provide additional support for the expenses associated with school and what assistance it will provide, since there might be constraints on what expenses are covered by the ACS/PPG Scholars Plus.
