Scholarships

Local Scholarship Tips – You may just turn in the application, but some optional things to include would be

     1. A Cover Letter 

     2. A Resume

     3. Your High School and College Transcripts

     4. Two letters of Recommendation

Putting scholaship applications in a folder with a cover page with your photo is a nice touch as well – this is optional, but it makes the application look more impressive.

Think Before You Hire Consultants

Families who feel uncomfortable with the financial aid process may turn to consultants for help. Many of these consultants offer legitimate services. Even so, hiring a consultant is usually not a good idea. Here’s why:

  • Free advice is available. Consultants charge a fee for advice you can get for free from high school counselors and college financial aid officers.
  • Consultants may not get you more money. It’s unlikely that a consultant can get you more financial aid than you can get yourself. Financial aid officers make decisions based on formulas, and consultants cannot change the numbers for your family.
  • Some advice is bad. Untrustworthy consultants might suggest moving money around or buying something expensive so it looks like you have less cash. Financial aid officers spot these types of tricks easily. If they suspect you of being dishonest, they might reject your financial aid application.
  • Some consulting services are scams. Some of these services make misleading promises and false guarantees in order to get your money or financial information.
