Look into these awards when you first enter the program Carefully read the terms of reference for each award Find out which awards require a letter of support from faculty Allow sufficient amount of time for faculty to write the letter of support
Gear your application towards the Terms of Reference for each award Each award requires a statement (usually one page) from the student Avoid generic statements intended to cover all the awards if you are applying for more than one
Statements should include the following: How you qualify for a specific award. For example if you intend to work with abused women, talk about your practicum, your work experience, your focus in your studies What have been your accomplishments in the field What you intend to do with the award – typically awards are intended to help students with their educational studies and how a particular award will further your education
Plan ahead and determine what scholarships are available to you ahead of time If you need a letter of support from faculty, approach that faculty member and give them as much information as possible so they can support your application E.g.: CV, your statement/application
Remember to put any Scholarship that you have been awarded on your CV. GOOD LUCK!
