For many students, there’s a lot going on during high school and college. You’re studying, reading, writing, carving out social time with your friends...and somewhere you’re trying to find time for important things such as the basic self-care task, sleep.
You know that scholarships and financial aid
are key tools to help you pay for school and you have really got to set aside time to apply for and focus on these student resources. Applying for scholarships should be a habit for all U.S. students looking to earn their college or graduate degrees. But you can’t just talk about it; you’ve got to make it happen. It’s up to you to change the script here AND to keep applying for scholarships throughout your college degree path.

Creating Positive Habits
Have you ever heard the term actions speak louder than words? Meaning you can’t just talk about something you want to do; you’ve got to put it into motion.
As the master of your destiny, your first step is to own your scholarship journey. We suggest creating a scholarship application goal. You can start small and adjust to this later. Whatever you do, make your scholarship goal a realistic one.
Your second step is to turn the scholarship application process into a habit. This is where goal setting is important—if you set a goal that you can easily tackle, your positive experience will fuel your scholarship applying habits. According to a Healthline article
, it can take as little as 18 days to form a habit!
Be sure to reward yourself! After you’ve completed your daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly scholarship application goal, reward yourself. This is a simple way to create a positive habit. The ultimate reward will be earning money to help you pay for college and eliminating or reducing the need for student loans
