Scholarship Tips

  • Read the application and be aware of all the requirements.
  • Keep extra official transcripts on hand if you plan on applying for several scholarships.  Know the difference between official and unofficial transcripts.
  • Give the people writing letters of recommendation a reasonable amount of time.
  • Neatness counts!  Use black ink and write as neatly as possible.  Typewritten or computer printed is better.
  • Use spelling and grammar check just to be sure.
  • Answer all questions asked.  Those that don't apply to you should be answered with "Not applicable".
  • Read the entire question carefully and answer what is actually being asked.
  • In writing your essay, be sure to address the subject requested by the endowing group if a specific topic has been named.  Include in your narrative answers to all the criteria mentioned.
  • Proofread your application for errors.
  • Make a copy of the entire application for your records.
  • Send hand written "Thank You" notes to anyone writing a letter of recommendation for you.
