Tips for a Successful Scholarship Program

  • START EARLY. Don’t wait until the last minute to complete the application.
  • PROOFREAD your application, particularly the essay response. Pay close attention to grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes. It is highly recommended that you have an advisor or teacher read over your complete application before submission.
  • RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE’S TIME. Give your recommendation writer enough time to complete your recommendation letter or online recommendation, if required. Do not give it to them the day before the deadline.
  • FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS in the essay prompt. Pay close attention to both content and word count when writing your essay.
  • BE YOURSELF. There is no “right” answer.
  • DON’T PROCRASTINATE. Deadlines are final. Your application will not be considered if it is late.
  • TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your application. Make a copy of your application for your records and make sure that ALL pieces of your application (including any other documents listed on the completion checklist) are included before you fax or mail it.
