When submitting a college scholarship application, always make note of the amount offered and date the winners will be notified. It may seem like a simple step, but when students are waiting to hear who has won a scholarship that they have applied for, knowing the date is really helpful.
Students should also regularly check the scholarship email they have set up (see more on setting up a scholarship email here) to make sure they don’t miss any notifications from scholarship providers. Often times more information is needed, especially if a student has made it into the next level or round of a scholarship competition.
If these emails are not answered and the information is not provided in a timely manner, the scholarship is forfeited and valuable scholarship money may be lost.
After all the hard work put in applying for college scholarships, NO ONE wants that to happen.
One final tip: When checking scholarship emails, also look in spam folders, as emails from unknown senders may get sent there and missed by the student.
Keeping accurate documentation on each scholarship is a MUST and checking scholarship emails regularly is just plain SMART!
