Scholarship Pointers:

Organization is the key in making the application process go smoothly. Letters of recommendation for scholarships may be obtained from classroom teachers, school counselors, principals, employers or members of the community. A ‘Letter of Recommendation Information Sheet’ is helpful when making a request for letters of recommendation. Essays will be required for many scholarships. 

Other tips include:

  • Highlight the deadlines
  • Write and rewrite the essay (remove the fluff). Provide solid reasoning.
  • Parent financial statement is very important -give solid reasons and facts.
  • Computer generate if possible or type everything – PLEASE DO NOT HANDWRITE

(Your application will look more professional and easily read)

  • Do not use acronyms or abbreviations – spell everything out
  • Do not use 1,2,3,4 for years – use 09, 10, 11, 12 (shows year of school)
  • Be neat – no whiteout, erasures, no paper smudges – retype, do not handwrite
  • Professional, check for grammar, and check for spelling errors

A student computer and typewriter are available in Student Services for filling out scholarships. To try filling out some PDF applications online, you can use PDFescape to fill in and print scholarship documents.
