My very best college scholarship tips!

Alia Memon's curator insight, March 9, 2015 12:35 PM

This article was especially helpful because it gave me a vast set of tips in order to help me attain more scholarships.  One of the tips I found most helpful was using a clean email address.  For example, my email address used to be uni.kitty@gmail.com, but I now will either curate a new email address or link my previous account in order to have a separate account for scholarships.  Another informative tip was to get pass the first 30 seconds.  This will be a very useful tip for me to keep in mind because I’ll be able to know to focus on pushing for an intriguing opening paragraph when applying for scholarships.  I’ve also never used the newspaper to check for scholarships, but I will utilize it more often now that I know there are scholarships opportunities advertised on local newspapers.

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 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. 

Alia Memon's curator insight, March 9, 2015 12:35 PM

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.
