Scholarship Mom Tip #49: Have a 15 Minute Goal
What can you do in 15 minutes?
Students will be more receptive to working on college scholarships with a clear goal or time frame in mind. Ask them to write half of an essay or search for scholarships for 15 minutes, setting the timer if that makes them more motivated.
They will often want to work beyond the planned time as they realize scholarship work is not as hard as it sounds.
The biggest hurdle is often just getting started, so don’t be afraid to get creative with ways to entice your student to take the leap and plunge into the big wide world of college scholarships!
