Scholarship Mom Tip #17: Check Your Mail
Check your mail–email and snail mail regularly!
Students need to regularly check their email and snail mailboxes,
including spam folders for notifications.
Some organizations will need verification forms filled out and mailed
back by specific dates, or the scholarship money may be forfeited. Don’t let that happen! Check those mailboxes and follow-up with any
scholarship organization that requests more information.
The work is not over until that scholarship
check is in your hands or has been mailed and received by the college you plan
