Winning a scholarship is an exhilarating feeling, but what most winners don’t know is you can lose your scholarship. This article completely opened my eyes to how easy it is to lose your scholarship. Not only do you have to keep in mind what kind of college admissions some scholarships only accept, but in some cases, if your GPA drastically decreases, you may lose your scholarship money! I was also unaware that some scholarships require a certain number of voluntary hours. I feel like it would be very easy to lose track of certain scholarship requirements; probably the best way to keep track of these requirements is to write a list and check the completed items as you have met them. In some cases you can also retain your scholarship after losing eligibility. While this is awesome, instead of taking chances, you should strive to meet the requirements from the beginning. I chose this article because I didn't realize you could have your scholarships revoked. I find this article extremely valuable because it taught me how to prevent losing my eligibility for scholarship winnings.
