    Tips for Applying for Scholarships

    1. Read the eligibility requirements carefully, along with the deadline dates.
    2. Get a brag sheet from the College/Career Center, fill it out and give it to teachers, a counselor, or anyone whom may be writing a letter of recommendation for you. The earlier you get started, the better. Most scholarships require two or three letters of recommendation.
    3. Organize your applications, your parent’s financial information, your test scores, transcripts, letters of recommendation, and anything else that is requested.
    4. Follow instructions to the letter, and make sure that your application is legible.

    Proofread your application, or have someone do it for you, and also make a copy of your application for your records.
