Tips for Submitting a Great Scholarship
• Do the appropriate background
work and find out exactly what
the specific scholarship is looking
• Read the rules and regulations.
• Expand on personal experience
by discussing your work or
volunteering. Explain how it fits
into your future plans.
• Communicate your longer term
goals. Scholarship providers want
to know they are enhancing the
life of a goal-oriented person.
• Fill out a Brag Sheet to help those
you are requesting a reference
letter from.
• Make a checklist for each
scholarship and stay organized.
• Plan ahead and don’t
procrastinate. Give yourself
plenty of time to fill out
applications. You cannot
accomplish this overnight.
• Have your application proofed
before you submit it.
• Don’t miss deadlines!
