Are you frustrated over private scholarship searches? Here are some tips to keep you applying!

  • Don’t give up! If you have applied for multiple scholarships and haven’t won yet, don’t take it personally. Like most situations in life, you are going to be most successful if you keep trying. It is helpful to find scholarships that you are passionate about and keep applying.
  • Make your essay a live document. Continuing to improve the quality of your essay will help it stand out. Edit and customize it for different scholarships. You will get the hang of what donors love to see.
  • Get Personal. Focus on applying for scholarships that fit your interests. There are scholarships for every type of person and interest you could imagine, such as zombie lovers, vegans and even being left-handed. The more personal the scholarship is to you, your interests or personality, the better submission you will have.
