Scholarship application tips

  1. When researching scholarships, always be on the lookout for scholarships with your tribal education office, 社区组织, banks and academic departments.
  2. Apply to many scholarships as possible. This increases your odds of receiving one because you may not get every scholarship you apply for.
  3. Most scholarship deadlines are January – May, but be aware of deadlines. Does the scholarship have a “received by” or “postmarked by” deadline?
  4. Never give out credit card info just to apply or pay for a scholarship service.
  5. General requirements for most scholarships ask that a student have a minimum 2.5-3.0累积绩点. Keep grades up and be sure to review eligibility requirements on each scholarship application.
  6. Be sure to proofread your personal statements. If time permits, got to the writing center or have an instructor or mentor review your essay.
  7. For scholarships that require recommendation letters, give recommenders two weeks to write a recommendation after they accept. It is best to provide information on what scholarship you are applying for, your resume and a pre-paid, addressed envelope to each recommender if being mailed.
  8. 最后, present yourself in a professional manner by cleaning up your email address, taking a photo that’s not self-photographed and reviewing your social media presence because first impression is key.
