Create a Scholarship spreadsheet
Copy and paste all of your scholarships into a spreadsheet document, and include columns for deadline dates, essays, videos, letters of recommendation, and a place to indicate whether you have applied, plan to apply, etc. Add columns for any criteria by which you would like to be able to sort your awards.
Apply
You can’t win scholarships if you don’t apply for any, so be proactive and try not to let any of the deadlines pass on scholarships for which you would like to apply.
Repeat
Applying for scholarships isn’t a one-time thing. Make copies to keep for your records. Many essays can be reused with just a little tweaking.
