Scholarship advice

April 21, 2010

The Alberta Learning Information Service has a great article on getting scholarships. Their best advice is to search for scholarships that focus on something you’re good at. Not everyone gets the highest marks in every subject, but there might be one subject you excel at or you may be good at sports.  There are organizations that focus on community service or leadership.

Once you figure out what you’re good at, it really is just a matter of applying and meeting the requirements for the particular scholarship. The really important thing is to keep doing what you’ve been doing. Whether you volunteer somewhere that makes you feel good about yourself or you study a particular subject, do what comes naturally. If you don’t win one year you might win the next year. Even if you don’t win the scholarship, you’ll feel better about yourself for trying.
