This week's tip, don't sleep on scholarships. We often find that students apply to a handful of scholarships. FYI, there is no limit as to the number of scholarships to which you can apply. If you want to improve your chances of getting scholarships, apply to more than a handful.
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.
