Scholarships may be awarded on a one time only basis or have a renewal clause attached to them. If they are renewable, make sure you find out what the criteria is to renew them. There are two types of scholarships, institutional and private. Institutional scholarships are awarded by the college and/or university. They can be based on GPA, class rank, ACT score, or any other criteria. You usually complete a scholarship form when completing the admission application to the college or university. Private scholarships are awarded by companies, foundations, organizations, etc. Check with your family’s job site and any organization they are member to see if there are scholarship opportunities in their organization.
Organize your scholarship search by using a notebook, labeling each month on the top sheet of each page. Write the website address on the sheet one month in advance of when it was due last year. On the first of each month, return to the website and download an updated copy of this years' scholarship application. Notice things such as due dates and # of recommendation letters needed. Give them 3 weeks notice. Have multiple copies of your college resume copied and ready to add to the application. It is also beneficial to have an essay written describing in detail why you need financial help to attend college. BE SPECIFIC!
