All I See Is Signs!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Are you looking for scholarships, but do not know where to start? Are you getting stressed out with applying for the thousands of scholarships that are available to you?  Well, do not worry because you are DEFINITELY not the only one! There are a few simple things that you could do to improve your search and make the process a lot simpler.

One thing that many students fail to do while looking for scholarships is to look at nonacademic scholarships also. Do not just limit yourself to academic scholarships because there are an unbelievable amount of scholarships that do not even require a certain level of academic achievement. There are some available for anything from race to religion to even the most bizarre requirements.

You should use all resources that are provided to you for scholarships, but the internet is one of the best sources that you can use. Use databases such as Collegeboard.org and FastWeb.com to search for scholarships. You can even check the website of the colleges that you are applying to or already attend. Most institutions provide a page dedicated to scholarships that are provided to their current students and prospects.

While applying for scholarships many students do not save their essays and contact info. So they retype the same information over and OVER AGAIN. Do not make this mistake. A lot of applications require similar information and have similar essay questions. This will not only save you the effort, but it will save you time as well which will give you more time to complete more scholarships.

Searching and applying for scholarships can be a hassle. It is a tedious job that a lot of students do not want to go through. However, do not give up. Continue to look and apply. Get help from counselors, mentors, parents, and any other person that is helping you with the college process. Remember, it can only be a stressful task if YOU make it stressful.
