My advice for those working on finding scholarships is to make time in your schedule to just sit down and apply to as many as possible, even the ones with essays. Not only take the time to write those essays but write them well. If you can make even $500 from one entry that takes 30 minutes, it's worth the time and pays off at the end.

Woman on Par Scholarship

Don't give up or get discouraged. Keep applying to as many scholarships as you can. The more entries the higher chance you have of possibly receiving one. I was skeptical but was so grateful that this organization saw my need and potential. There were only 2 winners 1 ($1,000) and the other ($500) and I got the $500! I have read the students who have won; never ever did I imagine I would be here too! Good luck to all those applying. Shoot for the stars!

It's just a matter of doing as many scholarships as you can. Spend enough time on them to where you are satisfied with it. Treat it as if it's an English paper if you have essays to write and apply to as many of the small scholarships as you can with some big ones here and there. Every little bit counts and all the hard work between small and large scholarships will be worth it in the end.

Foot Locker Scholar Athletes Program

SCHOOL

Stanford University

I wholeheartedly emphasize being genuine and sincere in your essays. It's one thing to answer a prompt for the sole purpose of trying to obtain an award and completely another by understanding if the prompt fits you in a way where you can sincerely express yourself and your needs. After all, this is the greatest factor the scholarship committee goes on by trying to distinguish those most deserving. It's one thing to have a 4.0, but another to show your love, passion, and dedication which helped you to earn it.

My advice is to not give up on applying for scholarships, even national scholarships. It may seem overwhelming and impossible to ever win a scholarship for which you are competing against students from across the country (that's certainly how I felt) but perseverance is important if you want to have success. No matter how many scholarships you don't win, never let that discourage you from continuing to apply.
