Scholarship Mom Tip #11: Remember the 5 P’s


Always remember the five P’s:

Prior Preparation Prevents Poor Performance

Search for college scholarships EARLY and be
ready when the majority of them are due each spring. It’s never too early to search for college
scholarships, as they are out there for all levels of students, even elementary
school kids! 

While you are searching,
take notes and if the student does not qualify in his or her current year in
school, jot down the year they will
and save yourself lots of time for future scholarship searches.
