Friends often ask for help finding money for their kids. I encourage them to appy to as many scholarships as possible. Most do not. If you're not taking the time to apply for scholarships, don't expect money to just fall into your lap.
Q: The scholarship I'm applying for asks that I complete an essay. The word limit is 500 words. Should I use all 500 words or just respond to the prompt and not worry about the word limit?
A: While we don't encourage you to write with a word limit in mind, we do encourage students to maximize their space by providing as thorough and articulate a response as the word limit allows.
