I recently had the privilege of interviewing one and am happy to pass along some of his scholarship judge tips to the readers here at Smart College Visit.
When asked for one of his best scholarship tips, I was told the following:
Scholarship Mom Tip #110
Encourage students to apply for the “hard” or more involved scholarships instead of focusing on the “easy” ones.
Many of the so-called easy ones are no-essay scholarship contests that have a huge number of applicants. However, the more involved ones — those with requirements such as an essay, letters of recommendation, transcripts, etc. — have less competition.
Less competition means that students applying for these scholarships have a greater chance of winning.
In the next few weeks, I will be sharing more scholarship judge tips, so bookmark this page and check back often, all the while applying for as many college scholarships as you possibly can!
