SMART College Scholarship Tip – Click Around!

This SMART tip helps students find out what the judges are looking for in each applicant and submitted application.

SMART college scholarship tip from Monica Matthews - The Scholarship Mom

For college scholarships, It pays to click around!

When students apply for scholarships, they need to avoid the temptation to find the application, fill it out, and submit it as quickly as possible.

If they take the time to click around each site of the organizations offering scholarships, they just may find a ton of inside information that can be extremely valuable.

For example, on the website of the Taco Bell Live Más Scholarship, I found this when clicking around:

Taco Bell Scholarship Judging Tips

This is inside information (yet clearly stated on the site if students dig for it) on what the scholarship judges are looking for in their winners!

And this advice from the Newton Pens Scholarship:

Newton Pens Scholarship Application Advice

The suggestions above from the judges may be very specific to those particular scholarships, so be mindful of that when applying.

To find as much inside advice from the judges as possible, click SMART!

  • Look for an FAQ section. If found, read it completely.
  • Scroll down and read everything on the scholarship page.
  • Find hyperlinks leading to other pages on the sponsor’s website. Click through and read the suggested information.
  • Take a look at the previous scholarship winners. Read as much as you can about them, including their essays if they are published.
  • Download copies of my How to Win College Scholarships ebooks. They are filled with advice on how students can impress scholarship judges. The word “judge” is found 105 times in the parent version and 104 times in the student version!

This SMART college scholarship tip is just one example of how students need to apply SMART for scholarships.

What is applying SMART all about?

It is what I teach in my How to Win College Scholarships ebooks for parents and their students.

Getting into the minds of the judges as much as possible is a huge part of winning scholarships.

It is not IF students apply, but HOW they apply that makes the most difference and increases scholarship success rates.

Take it from these happy parents of scholarship winners:

“My son did not start winning until we implemented Monica’s S.M.A.R.T strategies, that was a real game changer for us.” – D.A., Parent, Illinois

“I was terrified when I saw how much tuition was going to be and how little aid I was given. I knew I needed to apply for scholarships, but I had no idea where to find them, or how to start. After reading Monica’s ebook I learned how to apply SMART and I won over $21,000 in scholarships! I was in shock! I am so thankful for Monica’s ebook and I could not recommend it more!!” – B.W., Student, Michigan
