Some helpful hints when applying for a scholarship:

  • Include your email address or a self-addressed stamped envelope when requesting applications or information.
  • Read the application carefully and follow all instructions.
  • If any part of the application is confusing, feel free to seek advice from the scholarship provider.
  • If the scholarship asks for letters of recommendation, speak with your instructors, community leaders or people who you have worked with. Ask them in advance about the kind of information they can provide.
  • Type all application forms, letters, essays, questionnaires, or any other information. Proofread all materials and make sure they are picture-perfect: no misspellings, no errors. It is always a good idea to have someone else look over the application and attached statements one more time.
  • Be sure to make a copy for your records.

A scholarship information bulletin board with current outside scholarship listings is located next to the financial aid office in Building 14. Stop by and take a look at what is available.
