Scholarship Mom Tip #48: Make it a Party

scholarship party— Get the gang together and kick off your search for scholarships with a party! Why not?

Who says scholarship searching has to be boring?

Scholarship searching can be fun when a group of students meets and searches for scholarships together. Each student brings a scholarship listing book, tablet, or laptop, and scholarships are found while discussing college majors, interests, and possible careers.

Parents can help by providing notebooks, pens, snacks, and a comfortable place for a group of students to work. Students follow set guidelines like sharing each scholarship and all the requirements with the whole group.  After a few hours of searching and sharing, each student will have a nice list of scholarships that they can apply for.
