Believe in College Scholarship Luck
Do you believe you or your student can win college scholarship money?
Really, really, REALLY believe it?
“Luck is believing you’re lucky.” ~ Tennessee Williams
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I love this quote by Tennessee Williams and can relate it to college scholarship winning on several levels.
When students believe they have what it takes to win college scholarships, they will be motivated to find and apply for as many as they possibly can. Most scholarship organizations do not announce winners until the spring, meaning that students need to keep applying all throughout the school year, not knowing if they will be winners.
If they BELIEVE they have what it takes to win, they will feel empowered and excited about the scholarship process.
I know how hard it is this time of year. There are many scholarship deadlines to meet and hardly any winning announcements. (If this is you, read this right now.)
Whatever you do, encourage your students to NOT stop applying!

Will luck help students win more college scholarships?
Maybe not, but the belief that they are lucky will give them the extra push that is needed when the school year draws to a close and scholarship applying burn-out inevitably shows up.
Parents can do a great deal about helping to instill the fact that their students have what it takes to win college scholarships in several ways.
They can read over essays and give positive feedback, while at the same time providing helpful guidance such as, “I love the idea you are trying to get across here, but maybe a few more descriptive words in your opening sentence will help draw the reader in quicker”.
Parents can also be the finders of scholarships and email their students lists of awards to apply for, saving students’ time and motivating them to submit even more applications.
