  1. Never pay to apply for a scholarship!

  3. Search for scholarships for everything that makes you who you are!
  4. Edit and revise scholarship essays. Seek feedback from teachers, peers & counselors.
  5. Always ask for letters of recommendation at least 2 weeks before a scholarship is due.
  6. Make sure all pieces are completed and/or sent in by the deadline (application, essay, test scores, transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc.).
