Step 1: Gather the scholarships that you qualify for; there may be more than one. NOTE: A few scholarships have one application, but are offering different scholarships.
Step 2: Make a list of what is required for each scholarship. Do not depend on others to explain all the requirements to you. Call whoever is offering the scholarship if you need clarification.
Step 3: Prioritize your list either by deadline or essay topic. See other side for essay topic list.
Step 4: Watch out for the deadlines! If you miss them, you no longer qualify. Remember, the committee looks for all the requirements. If something is missing, you won’t get money. In essence, you are getting paid for the time you spend on these applications.
Step 5: All applications indicate how you should deliver the scholarship. Some will have an address to mail it to. Some may be dropped of in the counseling office. If you are asked to hand deliver them, DRESS appropriately!
The counseling department can help you. However, regardless of what you believe, it is not the counselors’ responsibility to fill out you applications for you. You must do this yourself.
Scholarship Format-Place all items in a folder
The order of items places in the folder should be listed on the application. You may request official transcripts from Mrs. Diez. Unofficial transcripts are requested from Mrs. Soto. NOTE: Ask for several at one time or make extra copies so you won’t have to request more when you need them later.
