Financial Aid and Scholarships


 The following feedback is from Scholarship Administrators regarding scholarship application submissions, and tips from them to you!


Complete application: applications have differing components and it’s important to make sure you have submitted everything, in order, on time, and in the manner in which they want to receive it.


Legibility: some applications are handwritten and need to be legible – meaning in dark and neat print.


Grammar, Spelling, and Typos: Proofreading is critical and making necessary changes is also critical.  Spell Check doesn’t take care of grammar always, nor does it always recognize a word that is out of place.  If your application is full of these types of errors, it looks like you don’t care about receiving their money.


Submit ON TIME: follow the instructions on HOW to submit your application, and by what date.  Late applications generally will NOT be considered.


Essay: needs to be well-written and appropriate to the question being asked, or to the meaning of the scholarship.  Scholarships that are “In Memoriam” need to be researched and handled appropriately.
