How to apply

If you are interesting in earning a scholarship you have to start by doing your research.

Most high schools receive a variety of local and national scholarship applications during the year but if you don’t have access to these, there are ways for you to explore some scholarship opportunities on your own.

Many local clubs and organizations in your community also provide scholarships but you'll need to call or make a visit to find out because you won’t find these online.

Here’s some helpful hints to get you started:

  1. Apply early and liberally.
    Many scholarships have early application deadlines and you don’t want to miss out. Apply to everything that you qualify for and you’ll increase your chances of success.
  2. Make sure you qualify.
    Be sure to read all of the requirements for applying because your time is too precious to waste on dead-end applications.
  3. Take the time to write a (really) good essay.
    Your essay is your first impression. Set aside a good amount of time to write a clear, concise essay that addresses all of the questions in detail and makes it hard to say no to you. Most importantly, PROOFREAD! If you can, have someone look over your work.
  4. Be honest. Take out the guesswork.
    Everybody loves an underdog. If your grades haven’t always been stellar or you notice that you’re lacking in community service or student honors, be honest about it. Sometimes addressing the problem up front is the best remedy for getting rid of it in the future.
  5. Deliver.
    Double check your application to make sure all of your materials are presentable and accounted for. Make copies for yourself. Send it out! You may want to consider using certified mail so that you know when your scholarship has been received.
