General Scholarship Information
1. Pay close attention to deadlines.
2. Bring your college applications to the guidance office when completed. The guidance department will help you check the application, make a copy for your file, add a transcript, and mail it for you as a complete package, if necessary.
3. If the scholarship requires a letter or recommendation, give the person you ask to write the letter plenty of time to get it written (at least a week's notice).
4. Never pay anyone for scholarship searches.
5. When the scholarships ask for a list of activities, be creative as long as you are accurate and factual. Include youth groups or other activities even if they are not school related.
6. If you know what colleges you are considering, let the guidance department know. They can contact individual colleges to see what scholarships they may have available.
7. Some colleges and universities that require an application fee will waive the fee if you apply online.
