The correct answer is "Hard". This is because the word "hard" is an adverb that describes the intensity or manner in which she works to get into the program. It shows that she puts in a lot of effort and dedication. "Hardly" is an adverb that means almost not or barely, which does not fit the context. "Tough" is an adjective that describes something difficult or challenging, but it does not describe the way she works. "Toughly" is not a standard adverb form and does not fit grammatically.
