Do NOT miss instruction to pick up application materials!
This is a PROCESS. It takes time & energy. Look over each application. Make a checklist of what you need to do to complete each application, such as: transcripts, resumes, recommendation letters, etc. Some students have created a spread sheet or table to organize this information. This helps when putting the final application together.
Review applications & total the number of transcripts needed. Transcripts will be available via the following: Your student IC Portal Email request sent to Mrs. Glaza at firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com In-Person written request to Mrs. Glaza If you request these thru the Counseling Office, provide your name & the number of transcripts needed. Come back to the Counseling Office in 1 or 2 working days to pick these up. Request Transcripts by: Tuesday, March 24.
Review specifics for Recommendations. Who should write these? What type of information should be included? Is there a rating scale to complete? If so, should it be attached to a letter? How should letters be returned with the application?
Ask references if they are able & willing to write a letter(s) for you. Give them no less than a week’s notice & arrange to get the letter from them. Provide envelope(s) if the letter needs to be returned in one. Label these in advance. Provide the reference with necessary information, such as a resume. Send “Thank You” notes to your recommenders

Before starting, read each scholarship thoroughly. Follow specific instructions, like “must be typed”. Read questions and essay prompts carefully. It is important to answer all parts of questions. Follow word count requirements Include only components that are requested—nothing more!
Neatness counts. Typed is preferred, even if not specified. If not possible and only as last resort, complete in ink (black is preferable). Make it neat & legible. Proofread carefully – grammar, spelling, punctuation. Respect class instructional time. Class time is not to be used to complete applications.
Put each completed application together. Double (TRIPLE) check to be sure all requested information is ready to be attached. All attachments should be behind the actual application form.
The Do’s Attach items by stapling them. Use ONE staple in the upper left corner. Return on or before the deadline. The Don’ts Don’t attach a cover page. Don’t include anything other than what is requested. Don’t put the application in a cover or envelope
This is a scholarship competition. Most members of committees are not school personnel. Be thorough, sincere & honest in your responses.
