The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing. When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.
Anyone putting national merit scholarship within the "awards" section of applications? I am hesitant to include it because it is based on a test people take their junior years of high school, but it is a college scholarship, and I feel like I should write as many awards as I can.
I would not list it because it is something you tested for while in high school. If they gave an award like that for the LSAT, then it is something that should be listed.
