The Road to Scholarships

tips and hints for junior high & high school students planning to use scholarship monies to pay for their continuing education

Scholarships during Spring Break

For many of you Spring Break has begun, for others it’s just days away.  You are already enjoying plans made, or making plans for the coming days off. But, what are you doing for your scholarship quest?

Sure, take this time to relax and enjoy yourself. But, also take a few minutes each day to do something towards your scholarship quest.

Here’s a list of things you can do while enjoying your time off:

1. Read the Ayn Rand book with an essay contest for your age group. Check out their website here. Some of the deadlines are looming, you may not have time to read and write a compelling essay in the remaining time. However, you can take your time reading the book, and taking notes, so you’ll be prepared to write the essay for next year.

2. Spend some time on the internet researching scholarships to increase those you do, or will qualify to enter.

3. Write an essay for an upcoming scholarship.

4. Write an essay for a past scholarship in preparation for next year.

5. Organize your files to make it easier to find upcoming scholarships, and your accomplishment.

Now  you may not be able to do everything on this list, and you certainly can’t, and don’t need to,  do everything, every day. You do want to save some time for fun and relaxation. Just remember to keep your scholarship quest in mind while you have some time away from school
