Scholarship Mom Tip #153: No Excuses When it comes to Applying for College Scholarships

stop excuses tell the truth, take responsibility and have no regrets. Being responsible and taking responsibilities is better than telling lies. Say sorry is not enough! No excuse!

What’s keeping you from applying for college scholarships?

There are so many excuses why students aren’t applying for college scholarships. Let’s take a look at the most popular ones and tackle them head-on:

I don’t have time – Do you watch TV? Search for scholarships during the commercials using The Ultimate Scholarship Book (see our affiliate ad on this page), or take time out from Snapchat to use a smartphone app like Scholly.

I don’t know how – Use online resources (listen to my podcast here).

I probably won’t win – You will never know unless you try!

I don’t have high enough grades – Lots of scholarships do not ask for a student’s GPA. If grades are an issue, focus on those.

Do you have any other reasons why you can’t, don’t, or won’t apply for college scholarships? Share them in the comments section and let’s find a way to make scholarships happen for you or your student!
