Taylor 's insight:

this article was actually very helpful. it never actually occurred to me to ask my family if there workplace provides scholarships, or to look around the checkout counters at places that I shop to see if they offered scholarships. knowing these things will definitely aid in my search for more obscure, less well known scholarships which will increase my chances of winning.

I find this article very helpful I mean finding different scholarships isn't necessarily easy, but this article helps me by telling me a lot of differnt ways to find scholarships that can apply to anyone and are easy to find.

Most people result in the internet to help them find scholarships and honestly that is what I do. I have alot of trouble finding scholarships that apply to me. I either don't have the right GPA, I may not be the right ethnicity, or I am not old enough but this article says that you can find scholoarships in your everyday life. Some of the things that I didnt know is that I can find scholarships by watching the news, talking to my high school councelor, or even by shopping at a local store. I can stop searching and searching for the perfect scholarship because most likely there are tons right in front of me.

This article will help me find other ways to get scholarships other than the career center and the counselors website.  The article explains different ways to find scholarships like from the place your parents work or even just looking up different scholarships on a search engine.  I will use this article during the scholarship seeking process to give me insight on different routes I can take to find, fill out, and win scholarships to pay for college.

This article was a unique look on how to find and attain scholarships, and gave me a couple more ideas on how to both find better scholarships, and make my scholarship application sound more appealing.  One of the tips I found most surprising was that scholarship opportunities can even be found when you’re shopping.  The next time I shop at Kohl’s, I’ll be sure to look at the flyers and coupons located on the check stands in order to check for scholarship opportunities, such as their $10,000 scholarship called The Kohl’s Cares Scholarship.  The article also mentioned how to use time more efficiently.  For example, I could be using the wasted time I spend watching TV when I eat breakfast in order to find new scholarships. I can also utilize college smartphone apps that look up scholarships for students.

College scholarship judges love this tip!

One of the major parts that most people don't like filling out when applying for a scholarship is the essay portion of the scholarship; they find it boring, useless, and long. The fact is though that the essay parts of the scholarship is the most important part of the application. Its how the reader can understand you and know what you go through in life. Dont be afraid to be personal because its the personal information that will make the reader remember you, make you stand out.

Taylor 's insight:

I personally do not get waken up by my parents in the mornings, however I do oversleep some times. this article shows exactly how important it is to create a valid sleep-wake schedule in order to be successful in college. I didn't really ever consider the severity that oversleeping could negatively affect my schooling in the near future.
