3. FIND YOUR MATCH

FOCUS YOUR EFFORT

How you compare and rank these scholarships is up to you. Evaluate whether or not you qualify for scholarships based on an honest inventory of each scholarship’s eligibility requirements.

HERE ARE SOME SUGGESTIONS TO CONSIDER:

Eligibility Requirements
Applicants who fail to meet all eligibility requirements are often immediately discarded and not considered further. If you don’t meet one or more of a scholarship’s requirements, skip it and apply your time toward other scholarship opportunities.

Application Deadline
Do you have a realistic amount of time to gather your application materials, many of which can include recommendations, a written exam or essay? Give your references ample time to write you a thoughtful recommendation and give yourself enough time to write a well-thought-out essay then have it reviewed by a trusted advisor or teacher.

Application Requirements
Look at what each scholarship requires in order to apply and make a checklist. Are you able to gather recommendations? Are you willing to sit down and write an essay response to a scholarship question? Does the application require a copy of your high school transcript? Make sure you have these items ready before deciding to apply for a scholarship.
