College Scholarship Tip Friday: Check Your Mail!
This college scholarship tip may seem like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised at how many students are not doing it. Keep reading…
Students, don’t miss out on money you may have won. Use this easy college scholarship tip DAILY!
In the next few months, scholarship providers will be contacting students who have been chosen to receive their scholarship money.
Students need to regularly check their email boxes, including spam folders, for notifications and correspondence from scholarship providers. Many scholarship award letters are also sent via regular mail, so checking the mailbox at home is also important.
Some organizations will need verification forms filled out and mailed back by specific dates, or the scholarship money may be forfeited. Don’t let that happen!
Check those mailboxes and quickly follow up with any scholarship organization that requests more information. The work is not over until that scholarship check is in a student’s hands or has been mailed and received by the college he or she plans on attending. If the scholarship is renewable (the money is given yearly), students need to be aware of any grade point requirements and renewal stipulations that come with the award.
In addition, copies of all correspondence with the organization offering the scholarship should be kept in a safe place together with all the materials that were submitted when applying.
