As the applications for the Savor Summer College Scholarship arrive, I feel the need this week to remind students of what NOT to do when trying to win money for college via scholarships. These tips will help students increase their chances of winning ALL scholarships, as well as my own.
- Don’t forget to include the application – Believe it or not, many envelopes arrive missing this key piece of material.
- Don’t hand-write any part of the application – Typing is neat, readable, and professional.
- Don’t send in extra letters of recommendation – Ignoring specific guidelines is not impressive.
- Don’t include letters of recommendation that are written for college admittance – “Dear Admittance Officer” does not speak to me at all.
- Don’t list everything you’ve ever done in your life on your scholarship resume – One page is best, 7 pages, WAY too long.
- Don’t forget to sign the application and have a parent sign if you are under 18 – There are legal matters involving giving money to students and my hands are tied if you don’t provide the requested signatures.
I hope these “what not to do” tips help you or your student in the scholarship process. Come back soon for next week’s tip as I share details about previous winners and the exact reasons why they were chosen. Students, keep applying for college scholarships all the way up to college graduation!
