Students, it is crucial that you apply for scholarships. Search for available scholarships around the beginning of your senior year of high school, if not sooner. If you’re already in college and looking for scholarships for the next academic year, you will still want to kick things off in the early fall. Most scholarship application deadlines fall between October and March. More on preparing for scholarships

Every student who is applying for scholarships should do 3 things:

  1. Apply for the scholarships that are available through the specific schools you are interested in. Every college has a scholarship page that explains the scholarships available through the school. This goes for the college as a whole and the colleges as in the departments within the college (Math, Science, Media, Behavioral Science, etc.)
  2. Write a powerful generic essay! So many scholarships are available for writing an essay. Rather than write a million essays, write one essay that is excellent and then adapt it to the specific requirements of the scholarship.  Many of them require similar key points as part of the essay.
  3. Do a scholarship search and see what other scholarships you should apply for.  Ask your school counselor what scholarships previous students have been awarded. If someone from your school got the scholarship before that can increase the odds that it is a legitimate scholarship.  See below for ideas for scholarship searching.
