How to Apply for College Scholarships

Here are four ways to find scholarship opportunities:

  • Look at your hobbies in a new way.
    You may not think of your hobbies and interests as a way to help pay for school, but you should. There are college scholarships out there for everyone: crafters, gamers, vegans, green thumbs, Trekkies—you name it. Scholarships aren’t just for straight-A students or all-star athletes.
  • Register for Scholarship Search.
    Our free Scholarship Search tool gives you access to 5 million scholarships worth up to $24 billion. It helps you find scholarships that match your skills, activities, and interests. You can even set up customized alerts to notify you when a new scholarship that matches your profile becomes available.
  • Meet with your school counselor and others.
    Discuss your plan to pay for college with your school counselor and ask about scholarship opportunities that might be right for you. Also, keep your eyes and ears open in your community. You might hear of college scholarship opportunities through your church, your job, or your parents’ jobs.
  • Consider scholarships for minority students.
    If you’re a minority student, there are scholarships available that can help you pay for school.

The Cornell Note-taking System

Big picture
1. Record: During the lecture, use the note-taking column to record the
lecture using telegraphic sentences.
2. Questions: As soon after class as possible, formulate questions based on
the notes in the right-hand column. Writing questions helps to clarify
meanings, reveal relationships, establish continuity, and strengthen
memory. Also, the writing of questions sets up a perfect stage for exam-studying
later.
3. Recite: Cover the note-taking column with a sheet of paper. Then, looking
at the questions or cue-words in the question and cue column only, say
aloud, in your own words, the answers to the questions, facts, or ideas
indicated by the cue-words.
4. Reflect: Reflect on the material by asking yourself questions, for example:
“What’s the significance of these facts? What principle are they based on?
How can I apply them? How do they fit in with what I already know?
What’s beyond them?
5. Review: Spend at least ten minutes every week reviewing all your previous
notes. If you do, you’ll retain a great deal for current use, as well as, for the
exam.

About Mrs. G

I was born and raised in Georgia. I live with my husband Nathan, our two kids, our Golden Retriever Rescue, and two cats. In our spare time, my husband and I love to be out and about with our kids exploring new things, watching movies, and spending time with our family and friends.


I am an avid reader, and when I am not binge watching shows on Hulu or Netflix, I love to work out. I am also a Georgia Tech and Auburn fan!


Crazy fact about me.....I have a weird love of snakes and bats!
