Let's Talk About Scholarships!



It's never too early to start thinking about college scholarships. Whether you're still in high school or half way through your college career, now is the perfect time to start your scholarship search. Here are three quick tips to consider when filling out your next application.

1) Don't wear a mask.  Be proud of who you are! The best way to impress a scholarship committee is to show them who you are. When applying for scholarship, always be honest, open, and 100% you!

2) Scholarship applications aren't text messages. Always make sure that your application is free of any spelling or grammar mistakes. Don't rely on spell-check alone - proofread and then proofread again. Have another pair of eyes review your application, too.

3) Take your time. Rome wasn't built in a day, and it takes time to craft a perfect scholarship essay! Giving yourself plenty of time to think through, write, and review your work will help you application stand out!
