SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH TIPS
- Create a calendar: When you find a scholarship you want to apply for, but the deadline is too far out or has passed, put it on your calendar for when the application will open.
- Treat scholarship searching and preparation as a part-time, year-round job.
- Skip applications that ask for a fee or bank account information. Check here for information on Scholarship Scams and Services.
- Consider community organizations, parents’ employers or other affiliations.
- Search for things that make you unique: favorite brand of shoes, hobbies, activities, companies you want to work for, local organizations, professional organizations in your field, etc.
- Don’t disqualify yourself!: If you meet most of the criteria, but not all, apply anyway. If you are invited to apply for a scholarship, make it a priority. Don’t wait until the last minute.
- Follow instructions, meet deadlines, and proofread your application.
