Crime Doesn’t Pay, but Your Mistakes Just Might!

Have you ever made a mistake and wished you could go back in time to change it? I’m not talking about holding up a bank or stealing a car (crime doesn’t pay people!), but maybe you said something you regretted or missed a scholarship opportunity. I know there have been plenty of stupid things I have done in my past that I would change, if I could. For example, wearing a white shirt to Disney World was not the best choice. Do you know what happens after you get off a water ride? Well, I apparently forgot until a cute little boy pointed it out to me.

15 minutes could save you

15 Minutes Could Save You $500 for College

Now that school is out and you have more free time on your hands, consider setting aside a few minutes each day to work on college scholarships. I’m not talking about an hour or two, just fifteen minutes a day. Heck, you probably spend more time than that fixing your breakfast every morning. You may not think that such a short span of time could ever result in winning any scholarships, but it really can help your build your college nest egg. There are several scholarship programs that are fun and easy to enter. Most require a short essay of 250 words or less, which is basically a long paragraph, but some scholarships require no work at all. You simply complete the online application and throw your name into the pool for a chance to win some college cash. Of course, the more scholarships you complete the more chances you’ll have to win. Here are a few scholarships to get you started.

5 Tips for Successful Scholarship Interviews

Does the mere thought of participating in an interview send you into a cold sweat? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Many students get nervous when it comes to those face-to-face interactions, especially when there is significant college money on the line. I was fortunate enough to win most of my scholarships without suffering through a lengthy interview process, but a few of the more prestigious and substantial awards required my presence in front of not one, but several committee members. You would think that sitting in front of a panel of strangers would be more intimidating than speaking one-on-one, but I actually felt more at ease with the larger groups. Think about it. The odds are in your favor that at least one of the people interviewing you will like you. But regardless of how many people are in the room, there are a few things you can do to improve your chances of having a successful scholarship interview.
