College Scholarship Tip: Don’t Be Afraid to ASK!
This college scholarship tip will help you dig deeper to find more scholarship awards!
Many will have a link on their website, but if you don’t see one, ASK.
A quick email or phone call oftentimes reveals scholarship information that others might not find because they give up too quickly.
This happened with my own son and our church.
I never saw college scholarship information in our weekly bulletin, but when I asked our pastor about a possible scholarship, he had the applications ready to hand out in his office!
Students, when calling, give your name and be extremely polite.
I know this sounds like a no-brainer, super easy college scholarship tip, but it really works.
Don’t be afraid!
It never hurts to ask, and quite possibly you just may come in contact with a scholarship judge who will remember your name and give your application one more reason to be put in the possible winners’ pile.
Also, spread the word that you are on the hunt for scholarships.
