Meet with a Financial Aid Advisor
Many schools have financial aid advisors who can help you navigate the scholarship application process. Schedule an appointment to discuss your options and get guidance on the best strategies for applying for scholarships.
Prepare Your Application Materials
Each scholarship will have its own application requirements, but most will require some combination of the following materials:
- A personal statement or essay explaining your background, goals, and qualifications
- Transcripts from your undergraduate and graduate studies
- Letters of recommendation from professors, employers, or other professional contacts
- A resume or CV demonstrating your academic and professional achievements
Be sure to carefully read the scholarship requirements and prepare your application materials well in advance of the deadline.
