National Siblings Day – 3 Ways Sibs Can Help Each Other Win College Scholarships
Happy National Siblings Day!
Because it is National Siblings Day, naturally my scholarship-loving mind thought about how siblings can help each other win college scholarships.
Same Parents – Same Club Affiliations: The club scholarships that one student qualified to apply for should be the same for all the children in the family. This also goes for religious affiliations and church scholarship opportunities.

Same Family – Same Income Level: Unless something has drastically changed in the years between siblings attending college, parents’ income levels should be similar, and income-based scholarships that one student qualified for should qualify all siblings in the same family. Also, if one sibling qualifies for first-generation scholarships, then all kids in the family also qualify.

Same Location – Same Local Scholarships: The local general (not based on college choice or major) scholarships that one student in the family applied for should also be put on the list for the rest of the siblings to apply for when it comes time to find the money for college.

Make sure to make and keep copies of all scholarships that each sibling applied for, as this will be a starting point for all students in the family. Keep adding to the list for each student and save a ton of time in the scholarship searching process.
Use the Scholarship Toolkit Organizer and have lists growing that all siblings can use.
Can you feel the sibling scholarship love? I can!
