Scholarship Mom Tip #37: Do The Research

Don’t be afraid to do your own research into what it takes to win a college scholarship.

Simply filling out applications and mailing them in does not usually result in scholarship success.

There are books written on the subject, including my How to Win College Scholarships, and countless websites dedicated to helping students succeed in the quest to win scholarship money.

Little details that add polish and class to each application can make a huge difference and just might be what it takes to land them into the winners pile instead of the reject pile.

It pays to become informed — Literally!
