    Scholarship Advice

    1. Spend time on the scholarship essay if one is required! The essay is usually the item that makes students receive a scholarship. Have the readers get to know you, what makes you tick, what your ambitions are, what your fears are, how you have overcome something(shyness, confidence, personal/academic obstacle, etc.)

    2. Save your essays because you may be able to use them for another scholarship

    3. Try to place all scholarships in a large envelope rather than folding it. That way it looks presentable.

    4. Apply for as many as possible! You would be surprised on how few students apply. Even when there is one LHS winner, we may only receive a handful of applications.

    5. Every college gives away their own scholarships too and those deadlines are usually in Oct/Nov. Check their website out!

    6. If you are a first generation college student(neither parent has a college degree) or if you qualify for free/reduced lunch, mention this on your applications! If you do not have significant financial need, clearly articulate how you are still in need of scholarships(parents aren't helping with tuition, mulitple children in the family, etc.)
