10 Tips on Winning a Scholarship

1. Start searching for scholarships as soon as possible. Don't wait until spring of your senior year in high school to start searching, or you'll miss half the deadlines. Continue searching for scholarships even after you are enrolled in college. Consider this like a full time job.

2. Answer all of the optional questions on a scholarship matching web site for about twice as many matches.

3. Use a free scholarship matching service like The Fastweb database is updated daily, and the site will email you notifications of new scholarships that match your personal background profile.

4. Look for local scholarships on bulletin boards near the guidance counselor of financial aid offices, or the library's jobs and careers section.

5. Apply to every scholarship for which you are eligible. Pursue less competitive scholarships, such as small awards and essay contests, since they are easier to win and the money adds up and helps you win bigger scholarships.

6. Don't miss deadlines. Use a calendar and checklist to get organized.

7. Tailor your application to the sponsor's goals. Read and follow the instructions carefully.

8. If you have difficulty writing essays, try recording yourself as you answer the question out loud, and transcribe the recording later. Most people can think and speak faster than they can write or type. Create an outline afterward to organize your thoughts.

9. Personalize your essay and be passionate. Write about something of interest to you. Make your application stand out from the crowd. Talk about your impact on other people. Give examples and be specific.

10. Google your name and make sure you have a professional online profile. Use a professional email address, such as Clean up the content of your Facebook account, removing inappropriate and immature material.
