Winning the scholarship game
Follow these tips to increase your chances of earning scholarships:
Don’t pay for scholarship services! Free resources include ScholarshipQuest at EducationQuest.org, your school counselor’s office, and EducationQuest offices in Omaha, Lincoln and Kearney.
Focus on college-based and local scholarships. You’re more likely to earn them over large national awards.
Continually update your activities, honors and volunteer or paid jobs using the Activities Resume at EducationQuest.org.
Earn the best possible ACT/SAT scores by taking the exams in the spring of your junior year and again in the fall of your senior year.
Use quality references such as a teacher, coach or counselor. Give them advance notice, a specific deadline, and a copy of your Activities Resume.
Ask at least two people to proofread your application.
