Remember - Your scholarship application represents YOU!

Give your application the time, attention, and preparation that it deserves. Complete all sections.

Read and follow the instructions carefully.

Proofread your work - especially your essay. Be specific and personal.

It is your job to make your essay stand out from the rest.

Be honest and be yourself. If you are asked, don’t be afraid to highlight your strengths and talk about yourself.

WATCH DEADLINES - financial aid offices and scholarship personnel adhere to them! You are responsible for making sure that ALL parts of the application arrive on time. If letters of recommendation or transcripts are required, give the people who will provide these documents generous lead-time. Also give them a stamped, addressed envelope if the recommendation is to be mailed separately.

MAKE A COPY OF THE APPLICATION FOR YOUR FILE. Keep a written record of scholarships for which you applied. Make a note of the deadlines, requirements, and responses.

Finally - ask for help if you need it.
