5 Tips for Scholarship Success


  1. Know where to look
    Check your college or university’s financial aid department for potential scholarships. Take advantage of online resources such as that match you to available scholarships. And, if you are in high school, check to see what scholarships are available to graduating students.
  2. Be open-minded
    Not all scholarships are based on academic standing. Some scholarships reward civic engagement, leadership experience, your heritage, affiliations, or a particular skill.
  3. Tap your network
    You may find scholarships are offered by your employer, sports league or your bank. Ask your parents if their employers offer scholarships to children of employees.
  4. Plan ahead and start early
    Be prepared to spend time filling out scholarship criteria. There are often essays, questionnaires and school transcripts to submit, so give yourself enough time to prepare.
  5. Be thorough
    Proofread your application and ensure you followed all the instructions. Ask friends and family to review your application as well before you send it.
