Helpful scholarship Tips

1. If you have not already completed your STARS application, please do so immediately.

2. You must apply individually for all scholarships for which you have been recommended in the STARS application.

3. If your classification (freshmen, sophomore, junior or senior) has changed, be sure to update it to your current classification and hours earned (in Academic section).

4. If you have changed your major, be sure to update your department (in Questionnaire section) AND major (in Academic section).

5. Double check the “Letter of Recommendation” tab and “Attach Document” tab to make sure all required documentation for scholarships have been uploaded.

6. You do not have to upload recommendation letters to each individual application. The committees will be able to see the recommendation letters that are uploaded under that tab. Please double check to make sure you have a recommendation from the correct persons that the individual scholarships may request (i.e. principal or guidance counselor).

7. When applying for individual scholarships, the “financial need” criteria is simply your opinion. If you feel you have financial need, then apply for those scholarships.
