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.
