Scholarship Mom Tip #30: Don’t forget the Resume

Scholarship tip #30 is packed with great advice on what to include (and why) on your scholarship resume!

Scholarship mom tip: add volunteer activities to your scholarship resume
Include a “scholarship resume” with your scholarship applications.  This is a great way to let the judges know
more about you in one precise, neatly typed piece of paper.  Include community service details, part-time
job experience, ACT/SAT scores, high school GPA, club involvement, leadership
positions, honors/awards won, and anything else that you are proud of and would
like to share.  Keep updating this resume
as you apply for scholarships.  This is
your time to shine and let the judges get to know you as thoroughly as possible
through a college scholarship application.
