Once you have a list of potential scholarships on your tracking spreadsheet, it’s time to match and prioritize.
Don’t feel that you need to apply for every scholarship on your list. Prioritizing scholarships lets you focus on the ones you are most qualified for or the ones with the nearest deadlines. How you prioritize scholarships is entirely up to you. You can consider the award amount and the number of awards offered. Here are some other things to keep in mind:
- Criteria — Are you eligible?
- Deadline — Do you have enough time to submit a complete application?
- Requirements — What is needed to complete the application?
