A few scholarship pointers….

Remember, you have to enter to win. Everyone is busy and applying for scholarships is time consuming, but remember these tips:


  1. If you spend an hour filling out 10 scholarship applications and you get ONE for $1,000, that is an excellent hourly rate!




  1. Keep copies of your essays on your computer and on a zip drive. You may be able to use them on several other applications. Be sure to proof read. You do not want to send an essay for one scholarship with the name of a different scholarship in it.




  1. Be sure to follow all instructions carefully, complete the applications neatly, and be sure to send them at least a week before the printed deadline.




  1. Ask a parent, teacher, counselor, or another trusted adult to review the scholarship application before you send it. You want it to be as perfect as possible. They may catch something you have missed or need to correct.




  1. Keep a copy of every scholarship application you send. Keep organized files for future reference.




  1. Apply for as many scholarships as you can! We hear each year about the “millions of dollars worth of unclaimed scholarships.” Guess why? NOBODY APPLIES FOR THEM!




  1. Make your part-time job this year to apply for scholarships. It is an investment that will pay!

Be sure to contact me if you have any questions. I will do my best to help you find the answers.
