HUNTER HIGH STUDENTS…CHECK THIS OUT WHILE ON YOUR SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH AND APPLYING! TOP TIPS FOR WINNING SCHOLARSHIPS! APPLY, APPLY, APPLY! You can’t get a scholarship if you don’t try! There are many scholarships out there that are looking for different things in students. Scholarships are awarded to students with all sorts of talents and interests. Don’t just think only students with high academic achievement win merit scholarships. Many of the best scholarship programs are designed for students in such diverse fields as music and the arts, foreign languages, community service, science, leadership, writing and oratory. Typically, these programs are entirely “grade blind” – meaning that grades are not used as a judging criteria. UNDERSTAND THE SCHOLARSHIP’S MISSION. Know why they’re giving out the money. READ EVERYTHING, AND READ IT AGAIN. Read every little word BEFORE you start filling out the application. One mistake can cost your shot at winning the scholarship. REMEMBER WHO YOUR AUDIENCE IS. Think about who the judges are likely to be. SHOW HOW YOU FIT WITH THE SCHOLARSHIP’S MISSION. BE PROUD OF YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS. Talk yourself up. Judges want to see how your achievements impact you personally. Show how your accomplishments relate to the scholarship itself. NEVER WAIVER FROM THE TOPIC. Stay focused on your essay topic. – (Again, not ALL scholarships require an essay) FOCUS ON LEADERSHIP AND CONTRIBUTIONS. MAKE YOUR APPLICATION STAND OUT. Set yours apart with unique accomplishments. START EARLY. Take time to read the stories and essays of previous years’ winners. **I (Mika Mokofisi, College Adviser) have examples of different personal statements I can show you for examples. Come see me in my office in the library!**
