Keep Applying!

Updated: Sep 23



With the scholarship tools provided last month, I hope you all have been applying for scholarships. Remember, college does not pay for itself. This month, we want to remind you to keep applying no matter the outcome of a previous application. You will not win every scholarship- but you must reflect and keep applying.







Reflecting:

How to reflect?

Re-read your application now that the stress of submitting it is over.

Ask yourself:

  1. Did you answer the essay prompt fully?

  2. Did you get all materials in ? If not, what was missing?

  3. Was this my best work? If not, what can I improve?

*If you submit your best work, acknowledge your hard work and apply for more scholarships. The reality is, you will not win every scholarship you apply to, even if your application is spectacular.
