Plan for Scholarship Success Now! Tips from Phi Theta Kappa

Applying for scholarships? Phi Theta Kappa’s experts offer six practical tips for making your application the best it can be. (Read the entire blog post here!)

1. Know the Purpose. Scholarship purposes are like shoes. Many styles exist, but the fit is dependent upon the person. Knowing the purpose is powerful in finding the right-fit scholarship. Fun fact: to find out what PTK scholarships you’re eligible for, take our Eligibility Quiz at scholarships.ptk.org.

2. Update Regularly. You’ll miss 100 percent of the scholarship opportunities shots that you don’t take by not updating your application. Login to PTK’s Scholarship App at least once a semester to update or complete your app. Keep your application updated and relevant.

3. Meet the Requirements. Be honest on the eligibility quiz. Sounds so simple, right? Tricking the system to force an application open causes you to waste time if you aren’t really eligible.

4. Apply Early. Get started working on your app as early as possible to provide ample time to finesse content before the deadline. Essays are usually the most heavily weighted item on an application. It’s worth your effort to invest the most time on this portion of your application.

5. Get Personal. In it to win it? Let’s get real — the more candid you are with telling your story and how it has motivated you in your personal and academic pursuits, the greater chance you’ll have of your app resonating with a judge. Increase the odds of scoring well by telling your story well.

6. Proofing Party. Different strokes for different folks. Having multiple sets of eyes on your application can help strengthen entries, spot grammatical errors, and create cohesive content. Host a proofing party to inspire peer reviewing.
