College Scholarship Tip: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!
This college scholarship tip will help parents and students work together in the college scholarship process to find and win more money for school.
Who does that??? *cue in sounds of crashing cars*
Students need guidance, and the more parental involvement, the more scholarships they will be able to apply for, and the better their chances of winning.
Parents can play a key part in the scholarship process right from the start by helping their teen become organized, find scholarships they qualify to apply for, reminding them of deadlines, and much more.
Moms and dads, don’t be afraid to become involved and learn along with your students the best ways to create scholarship application packets that stand out from the rest and impress the judges. Take their hands and become partners in the college scholarship process right from the start!
The main reason that I wrote my scholarship guide ebooks is that a fellow parent said to me,
The scholarship success you have had with your son is amazing!
You need to write down exactly what you did and help other parents who feel as lost as I do in the scholarship process.
How involved are you in the college scholarship process with your student?
Are you afraid to take the first step?
This does not mean writing essays for your student. It means that each of you will have specific roles throughout the process.
For example, the parent finds the scholarships and texts or emails the essay prompt to the student. Parents also proofread each part of the scholarship application and note exactly what is needed for submission, etc.
Knowledge is power, so use this college scholarship tip and download your copies of the How to Win College Scholarships ebooks now.

“1st kid-just encouraged her to apply to anything she found. She received $3000.
2nd kid, same approach-just encouragement. Smart, great ACT’s, student class/council president, multiple leadership activities-$0. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Yep-he was so busy he couldn’t find time to research/apply.
3rd kid-I took control, met with her weekly for organization/planning. True partnership. $38,000 in scholarships.
4th kid will be a senior in the fall. Will I partner with him? Oh hell, yes!” A.S., Kansas ParentCollege Scholarship Tip: Teamwork makes the Dream Work! #Parents #Students Click To Tweet
