Tips On Applying For Outside Scholarships

Applying to outside scholarships? Here are some helpful tips to follow when applying:

1. Before applying, research the company. Make sure the scholarship is sponsored by a reputable company or organization. One way you can do this is by using  the CW Library database, Hoover’s, and search for the company that way.

2. Make sure you read all the requirements carefully so that you are certain that you are eligible for the scholarship.

3. Plan ahead and make sure you have ample time to fulfill all the requirements (i.e. filling out application,writing essays, collect any forms/paperwork needed).

3. Once you've finished all essays or questions, have someone look over it such as a teacher or a tutor. This will ensure that your writing is free of any grammatical errors.

4 .Send your materials in before the deadline. Some scholarships give priority to early applicants. If you’re emailing your application, make sure it’s an email you check frequently so that you don’t miss any correspondence from the scholarship sponsor. 

5. Lastly, don’t get discouraged if you don’t win. Keep trying and applying!
