Hints for completing scholarship applications:

  1. If you meet the basic requirements for an award …..APPLY!
  2. ALWAYS include a COVER LETTER specifically tailored to the scholarship. It is suggested to include a RÉSUMÉ even if they don’t ask for one.
  3. Always read the application form completely before you starrt filling it out. Make sure that you’re complete and concise, but also creative! Many forms that are not complete are thrown out.
  4. Clearly emphasize your ambitions, goals, and what makes you DIFFERENT from other applicants – “TOOT” your horn!
  5. ALWAYS have someone proofread your letters AND applications.
  6. If you are required to send an application letter make sure they are neat AND clean! Write legibly or type the application form – it looks more professional.
  7. Keep copies of your cover letters, applications, essays, and letters of recommendations and make a list of these scholarships you applied for.
  8. NEVER become discouraged – NEVER talk yourself out of applying. You have just as good of a chance to receive the scholarship as any other applicant.
  9. There should be no reason to pay a fee to apply for a scholarship – usually scholarships asking for a fee are a hoax – don’t fall victim to this!
