Scholarship Mom Tip #8: Avoid Late Night Submissions

  Resist submitting online scholarship applications late at night!  Weary eyes don’t easily catch mistakes. Scholarship applications and essays need to be carefully read over by at least two pairs of eyes before submitting.      Don’t make a mistake that can potentially cost you thousands of dollars! Plan to have all applications ready to submit a few weeks before the deadline and calmly click on the “Submit” button when eyes are well-rested and fresh.       Monica Matthews is our favorite scholarship mom!

Scholarship Mom Tip #5: Look Off-line

Not All Scholarship Resources Are On The Web  Most students use the internet and only the internet to search for and find scholarships. There are many other searching methods, so use every available resource and don’t do what other students are doing.  The beauty of using other (off-line) methods is finding college scholarships that many other students will not find, which automatically increases the chance of winning the scholarship. THIS is what you want! Using off-line scholarship searching methods, I found scholarships for my son that no internet search site matched him up with even though we signed-up and entered all of his correct information. Online scholarship sites are great, but they are only ONE tool in a complete scholarship search process. Monica Matthews is our favorite scholarship mom!
