College Scholarship Tip: Use All Available Space!
This college scholarship tip will allow students to share information that the judges NEED to know.
This week’s college scholarship tip encourages students to use all available space on college scholarship applications:
On many scholarship applications, there is a place to explain “extenuating circumstances” or to share “anything else you’d like us to know about you”.
Always take the time to fill in these boxes!
This is one more chance for the judges to get to know you and understand why the scholarship money is so important to you.
Tell the truth and resist the urge to write a sob story.
If you are trying to win college scholarship money, there has to be a real reason why you cannot afford to pay for college on your own, so don’t be afraid to share it!
