As you begin your planning for college scholarships and you carefully read through this scholarship guide, you’ll quickly see how easy it will be to collect literally hundreds of scholarships and grants.
These first important steps will help you to keep your efforts organized and keep all the information that you collect together in one place. This’ll be especially important if you begin your planning efforts well in advance of the time you begin applying for scholarships.
This is where you’re going to collect all the article clippings that you find which will have to do with scholarships and grants. During the scholarship search portion of this guide we’ll show you how to fill this folder with dozens and if time permits, literally hundreds of college scholarship opportunities.
This will be an important folder for you when it comes time to draw upon all you’ve done in and out of school…And I want to emphasize both in and out of school.
The things you want to include are participation in clubs, a record of all your volunteer hours for any volunteering that you’ve participated in. (Keep track of your volunteer hours.) Any leadership roles that you took part in whether it was for school or outside of school.
As you’re planning for college, if you always keep in mind that this is a “Brag Book” this will help you to find and collect more valuable information about yourself to use later during the scholarship application phase.
During your search you’ll find many opportunities for scholarships and grants while you‘re browsing the internet. So in your “Favorites Folder” create a folder called “College Scholarship Planning”. This is the folder where you’ll save the web address of every scholarship opportunity you come across during your internet browsing.
