Top 10 Tips for Scholarship Applications

1. Apply only if you are eligible - read ALL requirements and directions carefully.

2. Complete application in full – if questions do not apply to you note that on application.

3. Follow directions - be sure to supply ALL requested materials, including transcripts, recommendation letters, and essays.

4. Neatness counts - type your application OR make sure your handwriting is neat and legible. 

5. Write an essay that makes a strong impression - be personal and specific.

6. Watch for deadlines – extensions are rarely given.   

7. Make sure your application gets where it needs to go – allow enough time for it to get there.  

8. Give it a final review - proof read the entire application carefully. Look for misspelled words or grammatical errors. Ask a friend, teacher, or parent to proof read it as well.

9. Ask for help if you need it - do not hesitate to contact the scholarship/funding organization.

10. Keep a back-up file - before sending in the application make a copy of the entire packet for your records and make a note of when you turned it in.

Students who do not have access to computers at home may use computers in the A.H. Meadows Library. Please note all requirements and deadlines for each scholarship as well as where each completed application must be submitted. As new scholarship opportunities become available they will be posted at that time.
