An often overlooked college scholarship resource is the high school counselor. Counselors are sent college scholarship information to share with their students, but are often overwhelmed with the amount of students they are expected to help and a lack of time in each busy day.
Students need to be proactive and let their guidance counselors know of their serious quest to find and win college scholarships.
By checking in at their counselor’s office frequently and asking about new scholarships, they will become a familiar face and name to the counselor. This opens up lots of possibilities, as the counselor can write a more personal letter of recommendation for scholarships and college applications.
Students serious about winning college scholarships need to make sure that their high school counselor knows their name, career plans, and desire to win college scholarships.
Here are many ways that students can take advantage of the scholarship knowledge of their counselors:
• Make frequent office visits
• Let the counselor know of college plans
• Ask about scholarship opportunities
• Keep visiting and asking questions
• Email questions and concerns
• Share college plans and dreams
• Get honest feedback on written scholarship essays
• Work hard and get good grades, proving a true desire for help
• Discuss college and scholarship application tips
• Ask to be notified about new scholarships
• Bring scholarship and college essays in to be proofread
• Be thankful, humble, and patient
