Scholarships are an important part of making your college career a success!
GET ORGANIZED: Keep a binder or folder of all your applications. Try to keep applications in order of when they are due and give yourself at least 5 extra days prior to the deadline.
RECYCLE: Keep copies (hard & electronic) of ALL your essays, recommendations, transcripts, resume etc. Chances are you will be able to use and reuse most of what you write.
Be Professional: Type or write neatly in blue or black ink. Capitalize and use correct grammar. Create a professional email. Do not leave any sections blank! If it does not apply to you, write N/A or not applicable. Otherwise always try to answer every question.
Be Compelling: Yes you need to be an open book! Tell a compelling story. Be descriptive and explain everything!
