Helpful Scholarship Tips-How to make a scholarship donor want to give you the money!

  1. Follow Directions - Provide everything that is being asked of you for the application, but don’t supply things that are not requested- it could disqualify you!
  2. Neatness and Preciseness Counts - Always type your application but if you must print, do so nicely and legibly.
  3. Make a Strong Impression with Your Essay - Where have you been, where are you now and where would you like to go! Experiences can be monumental if you present honestly how you were effected. Concrete details will help make your experience come alive for the reviewer.
  4. Complete The Application in Full - If there is a question on the application that does not apply to you don’t leave it blank, instead note that on the application.
