Scholarship Mom Tip: Your Email Address Matters


Create A New Email Address!

Have you ever come across an email address that makes you stop and say, “huh?” 

This happens all the time according to scholarship judges.  Email addresses like “” and “” do NOT impress.  In fact, they leave a bad first impression! 

If your email address is questionable, take the time to create a new one for all your scholarship searches, your scholarship resume and all applications that you submit. 

Choose wording that will not make the judges stop and wonder why you didn’t take the time to create a new, clean, and easy to read and understand, email address.  

A smart email address would be one that includes your name, such as “”  This is another way for you to get the judges to remember you.  It’s little things like this that make a BIG difference and will help you win college scholarships.
