How To Apply For A Scholarship?

The most important thing to do to apply for scholarships is to get accurate information up front:

  • What are the qualifications for applicants?
  • Where do you get forms and how do you apply?
  • Are additional interviews or references required?
  • What are the deadlines?

Once you have the information in hand, you can make a chart of what's due and when (use the Scholarship Checklist), and follow through. Taking small steps throughout the process will help ensure you will meet all the requirements on time. Then, you get to sit back while the sponsors make their decisions.

Remember, most scholarship funding comes directly from the colleges themselves, so focus on making your college applications as strong as possible.
