Scholarships, they’re great because hey – money to pay for college!
Scholarships are also complicated:
There’s a lot of information to keep track of and it’s difficult to stay on top of it all.
Or is it?
Well, it turns out, you can drastically simplify the scholarship application process when you’re organized.
In today’s post I’m going to show you how to make organizing and tracking college scholarships easy.
Getting organized and staying organized is empowering, and for a number of reasons.
When you’re organized:
- you know where things are
- you know what you’ve accomplished
- you know what still needs to be done
- things that are organized just look better!
But, most importantly:
Being organized saves you time.
Which would you rather do:
1 ) Spend a whole day figuring out what still needs to be done for a scholarship application, where to send it and if its even worth because you forgot the due date was tomorrow.
2 ) Or, spend a little extra time upfront writing down all the pertinent information when you first decide you want to apply for a scholarship.
Personally, I’d choose option two. It sounds a lot less stressful.
And as a college (or high school) student, you can definitely use less stress in your life.
And I have a solution that will do just that.
Let me introduce you to my Scholarship Application Tracker Worksheets.
With my free Scholarship Application Tracking Sheets you can reduce your stress load and free up some memory space in your brain. Space that could be better used for remembering answers to exams questions…
The best part:
I’ve already done all the hard work for you.
You don’t need spend time deciding what you should write down about each application or even thinking of a way to write it so it’s easy to reference later on.
With my Scholarship Trackers Sheets, all that has been carefully thought of and executed in the design. All you need to do is fill in the blanks each time you start apply for a new scholarship.
So, what will these forms keep track of?
There is space for all the crucial information you’ll want to know about a scholarship.
The worksheets are broken down into three, neat boxes per page so it’s quick and easy to separate what you’re tracking for each scholarship.
Here’s what goes on the first line of a box:
- The NAME of the scholarship
- Who is giving away the scholarship aka the ORGANIZATION
- The dollar AMOUNT of the scholarship
- The DUE DATE of the scholarship
After that you have the documents needed.
Most scholarship applications need a letter of recommendation, a transcript of your grades/GPA and an essay.
Others will require extra items, so I have left a few blank spaces that you can fill in.
There are check boxes next to each needed document. Once you have secured that document – check it off!
This way you will be 100% sure that you have it and you can see what you still need to get.
On the next line down:
There are just a few more bits of information you’ll want to have handy.
First that’s the date you turned in your application – again, something to give complete confidence that you did turn it in.
And second, the date that the winner is announced. Some scholarships contact the winner, but not always.
That’s why you’ll want to know when the money is awarded – so you can check to see if it was you!
There are a few lines at the bottom of each box, where you can jot down any extra notes you want to remember about a scholarship application.
My Scholarship Application Tracker Worksheets are the ultimate scholarship application organizers. Each box is succinct, yet packed with useful information.
Now that you know all about them, it’s time for you to take action.
