Scholarship Reminders!

Just a friendly reminder to increase your success with scholarships:

1.  Watch the deadline for scholarships
2.  Give yourself enough time to gather all the required information (ie., transcripts, letters of recommendation,
     financial information)
3.  Our registrar is very busy. Expect 3 days to receive an official transcript
3.  Give the person writing you a letter of recommendation as much time as possible.
4.  Prepare an auto-biographical in advance that include academic, personal, social highlights. This  will eliminate rushing to prepare one at the last minute.

Questions? See Scholarship Counselor Mr. Smith!
