Application Tips and Resources

  • Be mindful of deadlines and plan ahead! Internships and scholarships can be very competitive, and vary in their application requirements. Requirements may include a letter of recommendation or transcript, which need to be requested in a timely manner. Make sure you get your questions answered ahead of time as well. 
  • Proofread and revise! Have someone look over your personal statement and application ahead of time--make sure you are communicating the message you want the scholarship or internship committee to receive, and express why you are the best candidate for the award or position. 
  • create a log to help you track information about different scholarships you are applying to, with information such as the requirements, documents needed (official transcript, letter of recommendation, etc.), how to submit it, and when you turned it in. Feel free to this excel template as a guide. 
  • Send thank you notes to professors or individuals who assisted with your application, such as if they wrote a letter of recommendation for you. Also keep them posted on the outcome of your application, even in the hopefully unlikely event you did not receive the award or position.
