When completing a scholarship application form, we suggest the following guidelines:
Applications are often disqualified because applicants left questions blank.
Ask a friend, parent, professor to review your application. If you cannot find anyone, contact the Coordinator for University Scholarships for assistance.
Appearance goes a long way regarding the success of an application. Oftentimes, handwritten applications are messy and hard to read. Make the selection process as easy as possible for the selection committee.
Most scholarships list a contact person. Utilize this contact if you do not understand what the application is asking of you.
Do not use shorthand or text-messaging language. Be sure that the first letter is capitalized when necessary and a good amount of spacing is used.
