Tips for Seniors filling out Scholarship Applications!
Remember! Your scholarship application represents YOU.
Give your application the time, attention, and preparation that you and it deserve.
Read and follow the instructions carefully. If you have questions, call the CCCF office at 574-722-2200.
Type or print neatly. Please use ink, not pencil, for any handwritten materials.
Allow plenty of time to gather the required materials. Give careful thought when selecting someone to be a reference for you. Make certain these persons know you well and that you have permission to use them as a reference.
Proofread your work – especially your essay, if one is requested. Check the spelling. Check the grammar. You may even wish to have a friend or a teacher proofread your completed application.
Be honest and be yourself.
If you are asked to talk about yourself, don’t be afraid to highlight your strengths. Be truthful without being boastful.
Watch deadlines – if your application is late, it will be rejected.
