How To Be Competitive for Scholarships

Are you invited by a college or university for an on-campus competition for a scholarship? Are you wondering how you can win a scholarship? Here are some tips to help your chances of winning:
1. Have confidence in yourself: You have the credentials or you wouldn’t be in the competition. Strut your stuff!
2. Do your research: Find out what the school focuses on and match your interests to theirs.
3. Dress in “business” clothes: No inappropriate clothing, such as T-shirts, short skirts, or ragged jeans.
4. Be yourself: Talk about yourself and your values. Know why you want to go to the school and how you can make a difference.
5. Prepare a strong summary statement: Thank them for the opportunity and write a hand-written, thank-you note.

Good luck!

  1. Please tell me that youre going to keep this up! Its so superior and so important. I cant wait to read much more from you. I just feel like you know so significantly and know how to make people listen to what you’ve got to say. This weblog is just as well cool to become missed. Fantastic stuff, definitely. Please, PLEASE keep it up!

  2. Sort of off subject matter but do you have any kind of suggestions for a new web host? I keep reading about GoDaddy but I wanted to know what you use. Your pages seem to load a lot quicker than in my site.

    • Yes, I use GoDaddy – it’s good.

      To the people who want to comment and are from businesses: I only allow individuals to comment and will not allow advertising for purposes other than it relates to my topic – the college process. Those who do post comments from businesses will go to “spam”.

  3. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Outstanding work!
