Application Tips and Resources

  • Be mindful of deadlines and plan ahead! Many scholarships may require a letter of recommendation or transcript, which need to be requested in a timely manner. 
  • Along with being mindful of the deadline, make sure you get your questions answered about the scholarship ahead of time as well. 
  • Have someone look over your essay and application ahead of time--make sure you are communicating the message you want the scholarship committee to receive with your application, and express why you are the best candidate for the award. Proofread!
  • 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.
