College Scholarship Tip Friday: Pass the 30 Second Test
Use this college scholarship tip to impress the judges and win more money for school!
Did you know that the first 30 seconds that the scholarship judges look at a student’s application are the most important?
Before picking a winner, scholarship judges need to eliminate the applications that are obviously not in the running for the scholarship money.
What they are looking for is complete application answers (no missing information or blank boxes), required materials included in the correct order, and a generally neat and orderly feel to the application.
Taking extra care to ensure complete applications are submitted can be an easy way for students to propel their scholarship applications into the pile that represents the money.
For applications that are submitted online, there should be no missing information (blank spaces) and documents that are uploaded can include personal touches such as a student website link and activity resume.
