4 II. Time B E S M A R T. P L A N A H E A D. S A V I N G T H E R I G H T I N F O R M A T I O N W I L L E L I M I N A T E H O U R S O F R E C R E A T I N G D A T A. P L U S, Y O U C A N C U T A N D P A S T E P A R A G R A P H S I N T O E S S A Y S.

5 A. Approach it as a project and set aside one full day for research and one evening a week for follow-up.

6 B. Pick 4-5 good personal references. Obtain 3 letters of recommendation. Consider the following sources: neighbors mentors teachers employers *Be cognizant regarding time.

7 III. Preparation O R G A N I Z E S C H O L A R S H I P S B Y D E A D L I N E S. H A V E L E T T E R S O F R E C O M M E N D A T I O N O N F I L E. D R A F T T E M P L A T E E S S A Y S A N D C R E A T E Y O U R A C A D E M I C R E S U M E.

8 A. Create generic information to use for essays and applications. 1. Who you are. 2. Your likes and accomplishments. 3. Your awards and recognitions. 4. Why you re interested in your career choice. 5. Why you want to attend the school you ve selected. 6. Who are the people who ve inspired you? 7. Any volunteer activity.

9 B. Create your academic resume. You can use an on-line form and be sure to include school history, clubs or sports, volunteer activities, hobbies, employment and accomplishments.

10 IV. Confusion. L E A R N T O U N D E R S T A N D T H E S C H O L A R S H I P I N F O R M A T I O N. D O N O T B E A F R A I D T O M O V E O N T O O T H E R S C H O L A R S H I P S ; Y O U D O N O T H A V E T O A P P L Y F O R E V E R Y O N E.

11 A. Focus primarily on scholarships for which you meet the requirements, BUT do not discount the scholarships you may not think you qualify for.

12 B. Confirm deadlines. Can you meet the deadline and gather all the information required? If not, move on.

13 C. Be realistic. Keep your expectations where they need to be. Remember to use this as an additional source of college funding not the only source. Be prepared for some rejection; you will develop that great ability to bounce back!

14 D. Normally, applicants DO NOT hear from a scholarship group except to confirm receipt of their application, or if they are seriously considered as an award winner. Do not be surprised if you never hear from them.
