Searching the internet for free money for college. You almost can’t miss out on the wonderful opportunity, immediacy and most effective process that technology puts at your fingertips, being careful however of some ‘scam’ like luring, false claims and empty promises. Always make it a rule not to pay anyone anything for the permission to apply. Don’t share personal information over the web and always fill out the forms by yourself. There are several databases, lists, and links to follow and it will be time and effort very well spent.
As you keep going, try to make a shortlist of the scholarships that interest you and send off for the application packages straight away. When they do arrive, fill them out and send them right back straight away. Take note of deadlines and special requirements (transcripts, letters of recommendation, academic standing, merit, other selection and eligibility criteria, etc.)
If an essay is needed you should take the necessary time in order to make it the best representation and introduction, sell and positioning possible for you as the top candidate. If this is a need, there will sometimes be less applicants, but this has all changed recently.
Mentioning all details about yourself in your introduction essay as well as your application letter:
► Try to compile a list of your extracurricular activities such as, clubs and teams, offices or positions of leadership held, any volunteer activities and even conferences, meetings, or trips where you have acted as representant for your school, club or church.
► Make sure you clearly mention any designations and titles that you might have received, then make a list of every award that you have received since the 9th grade! All of this does matter, whether you believe it or not!
It is most essential that the language, grammar and punctuation is precise, and a brief expression with appropriate style, tone and the like are well taken care of. Try to have an extra set of expert eyes that will help you to read over and give you some input and proper assistance with it – even if your English is very good!
Making some copies of all applications for practice runs and for your files and records are very much recommended.
Getting all your scores (ACT or SAT) and GPA transcript (and making copies of that too) are very important.
