Think Like a Scholarship Awarding Officer
Once you know the purpose or objective of the scholarship, you need to see if you are a good match for the agency that sponsors it. At this point students often make one of two mistakes.
- Overestimate how well they fit the purpose
- Underestimate their qualifications and becomes reluctant to apply.
After working with thousands of students, we have learned that students more often underestimate their abilities. Be realistic and don’t sell yourself low. Keep in mind that to find a perfect match is impossible to find. There are many factors that will influence decision.
Take a Reality Check of yourself
Application Dead Lines:
Scholarship deadlines are not like tax deadlines. The deadlines for scholarships vary. Be aware of these crucial dates. Unless you plan carefully, you may miss out on a scholarship simply because you don’t have the time to create a decent application.
Review Your List Daily and work methodically
After you prioritize your selected scholarships based on suitability, apply one by one according to your priority, from high priority to low priority. We are sure that you will not reach the bottom.
