You will be asked to fill out an application, provide an essay, and nominate two people to provide letters of recommendation. There is only one application this year, but you may apply for any and all scholarships, given the scholarship criteria (e.g. Rocco Conte is for study in a country that borders the Mediterranean Sea).
Cadets are responsible for ensuring that all packets are complete. You should be able to track this process through the online management system. As a reminder, cadets are permitted to apply for all scholarships, but may not receive funds from any one scholarship more than once (e.g. you may only receive funds from the Lanford scholarship once in your cadetship).
