Scholarship Tips - Scholarship Tips for an Interview?

Here is some information you need to succeed during a scholarship interview.

  • Prepare yourself: You wouldn’t go to a job interview without doing some research on what the company wants. Prepare for this interview with the same mindset; do research on what the donor is looking for in a recipient.
  • Dress to impress. Look your best: This shows seriousness and how much this award really means to you.
  • Know yourself: This can be a very nerve-wracking process; be aware of your body language and be cautious of what you say and how you say it.
