Scholarship Tips to Help Students Win College Money in 2017

  • Start researching NOW - Many of the largest scholarship programs have deadlines coming up this month or in February (if they did not already occur in the early fall). For the best chance at meeting deadlines and actually winning scholarships, students shouldn't wait until they actually get accepted to the school of their dreams to apply. In fact, they don't even have to wait until senior year. They can win money for college as early as age 6 (see Senior Year Head Start). Even if a student is getting ready to start their freshman year or another year in college this upcoming academic term, they should start researching before tuition bills are actually due. Once a student gets a list of scholarship programs, web sites, and deadlines, they should create a monthly planner to stay on track and apply for every scholarship available to them. See chapter 2, 3, 4 and 6 of Winning Scholarships for College (4th edition) for help with finding scholarships and getting organized. You can also see The Scholarship Monthly Planner.
  • Review the activities you've been involved in since 9th grade. If you aren't on pace to exceed any required community service hours OR if your school does not have a requirement, immediately begin to participate in at least two community service activities. Community service hours can help  students become more competitive for scholarship programs AND for acceptance into colleges and universities. Not only can some scholarships be won on the basis of community service alone; nearly all scholarship programs want to see students who get involved in activities that benefit others. They also love students who can recognize a school or community issue and discuss (written in an essay or verbally in an interview) ways to solve it. Community service can really make the difference between winning and losing a scholarship competition. See chapter 14 of Winning Scholarships for College (4th edition) for more about the role of community service and scholarships.
  • Register for Google Alerts to get e-mail updates about recently written articles concerning scholarships, college, and financial aid. New scholarship programs can be introduced at any time. Using Google Alerts and choosing to "Like" The Scholarship Workshop on www.facebook.com/scholarshipworkshop or follow us on Twitter @ScholarshipWork can help keep students informed about current and newly created scholarship programs for which they might be able to apply. See chapter 3 of  Winning Scholarships for College (4th edition) for more about using the Internet and social media in a scholarship search.

Scholarships for Minorities

Despite our country’s ongoing economic volatility and increased college costs, the financial aid picture for minorities has never looked brighter. Currently, billions of dollars are set aside each year specifically for Asian Americans, African American, Hispanic American, and Native American students. This funding is open to minorities at any level (high school through postdoctoral) for a variety of activities including study, research, travel, training, career development and creative projects.

While numerous listings provide general financial aid opportunities, there seems to be a lack of online scholarship listings specifically for minority groups.  We at AffordableColleges.com wanted to change this by providing an extensive listing of scholarships exclusively for minority students.  Check out here: http://www.affordablecolleges.com/resources/scholarships-for-minorities/#african-american-students.
