Scholarship Tips from School Guide Publications

Apply early: Strictly observe deadlines and strive to submit applications early.
Be honest: It’s important to be truthful about grades, experiences, memberships, qualifications, family finances and other information.

Be selective: Only apply if you meet the scholarship’s minimum requirements.

Seek advice: Talk to other students who have already won scholarships.

Carefully follow instructions: If the application asks for a 500-word essay, do not exceed this limit. When submitting the application, only include items requested.

Proofread your application: Review everything. Typos are a sure way not to be considered for a scholarship. Consider asking a parent, teacher or friend to read your application. Keep in mind that spell checkers are great; however, they only verify that words are spelled correctly. So, don’t let this happen to you: I ran the spell checker on may essay, so I no everything is find.

Keep copies of everything you send: If your application is misplaced, having copies will make it easier to resend your information quickly.

Send your application packet by registered mail: Many sources offering scholarships will not confirm receipt of your application. Consider sending your application via USPS registered mail so you know your materials arrived safely.
