Unfortunately, scholarship application mistakes are all too common and students might not even realize they have made them until it is too late. What looks good to their eyes may easily contain simple mistakes that are easily corrected if the time is taken to find them before clicking “submit” or mailing in a scholarship application packet.

College scholarship judges are quick to spot the grammar mistakes and typos of students, which often times results in applications getting tossed into the reject pile.

No student who has worked hard on a scholarship application for hours wants that, so here are three simple tips for proof-reading scholarship essays and applications that will dramatically cut down on grammar mistakes and typos:

Print & Review – No matter how the scholarship application is submitted, online or by mail, each part of it needs to be printed out and carefully read. Mistakes are easier for eyes to find on printed paper rather than a computer screen.

Use Big Font – Before printing, change the font to a large size. Reading the big font helps mistakes more easily stand out and get noticed faster.

Let it Rest – Do not read over a scholarship application or essay once and consider it fine. Get up, walk away from your work station, and then come back and read it once again. Even better, wait 24 hours and read it again. When you work on a document for a long period of time, the eyes will start to skip over well-read content. Let fresh eyes have a look after a nice break and scholarship applications mistakes will be much more easily spotted.
