Scholarship Application Tips

  • Make sure that your application is complete and that only required materials are uploaded. Incomplete applications WILL NOT be accepted or weighed heavily against during the verification/selection process. 
  • All documents uploaded should identify you. Don't forget to include your name on everything you submit!
  • Outline essays and personal statements before you begin writing. Please proofread all application materials before submitting them.
  • Ask for letters of recommendation ahead of time. Allow ample time (a few weeks if possible) to have your letters of recommendation completed before the deadline.
  • Deadline: Please pay attention to deadlines posted on all scholarships. Turning in a late application will harm your ability to get the scholarship and could result in wasted effort for you and the scholarship committee.
