How to make the most of your scholarship opportunities....
Your desire to partner with your parents is admirable. Begin by creating a profile with several scholarship search engines, including fastweb.com, cappex.com and collegeboard.com. Your unique qualities (including your academic and social interests, family and birth circumstances, gender, political persuasion, geographic location, sexual orientation, handedness, health, and more) will be matched to scholarships from many sources. When applying, be sure you stay within the word limit, remain on topic, be concise, adhere to all grammar and spelling rules, and if possible, be creative. Scholarship committees are looking for students who are bright, interesting and represent their mission. Best of luck!
