Be alert of potential scholarship scams. Any scholarship asking for a deposit is not considered a true scholarship. Some private companies will request a deposit or fee, which in some cases can be a reduction in a housing payment, or a “searching” fee for scholarships that you can pursue on your own without paying a fee. You should not have to pay for scholarships.

  • Complete the application in full. Note if something is not applicable (N/A) on the application. Do not leave items blank.
  • Follow directions. Do not supply items not requested (e.g., transcripts, resumes, etc.).
  • Neatness counts. Make photocopies for working drafts. Type when you can and make sure your printer has plenty of ink. If you must fill in an application by hand, be sure that your writing is neat and clearly legible.

  • Watch all deadlines. Have a self-imposed deadline two weeks prior to the actual due date. Use this as proofreading time.

  • Make sure your application gets where it needs to go. Make a copy of the entire packet and keep it for your files. Make certain that your name appears on all pages. Double-check where to submit each application.
