Applying for Scholarships
The only way to have a shot at winning scholarships is to apply for scholarships.
How do you do that, you ask? Where do you begin? I’m glad you asked.
- Take a few minutes and conduct a free, college
scholarship search at www.scholarships.com.
- Go over your search results and mark all those you feel you have the best shot at
- Start contacting scholarship providers and declaring your candidacy for this year’s
winner. Be sure you contact each provider in the manner they've requested, whether
it's email, fax or formal letter. If you are applying via mail, you can take advantage
of our customizable scholarship application request letter.
It sounds easy, because it actually is easy to apply for
scholarships. Some may require you to put in some time, but once you've
completed an application or two, I think you might find it will get easier and take
less time with each additional one. Don’t psych yourself out or let yourself get
overwhelmed by all you need to do before you graduate high school. Start early and
work diligently and it will pay off. You may even find some of the work you do can
be applied to multiple scholarship applications- such as an
essay or writing sample.
