the search. Use FASTap (it's free!) to locate the scholarships you are eligible for. Deadlines are different for every scholarship. Deadlines, quite literally, pass every day. Any time is a good time to get started. START NOW!

the letter. Send a letter to each scholarship source and ask for their scholarship application and requirements. The letter can be a general request for information "form" letter that can be photocopied. See our "sample letter" and "tips".

the application. When filling out scholarship application forms, be complete, concise and creative. Use our tips to make yours stand out from the rest. Use our application checklist to stay organized.

the essay. Most organizations awarding scholarships require an essay as part of the application process. The essay is the most important part of the private sector scholarship search. Click here for helpful advice about writing your essay.

the calendar. I also find it helpful to keep a calendar with deadlines circled so you can stay organized. If a scholarship application deadline has passed, save it for the next year. If you are turned down for a scholarship, don't worry. Some organizations want to see if you will apply a second time. The important point is to stay motivated and be persistant.

Tell your fin aid officer about any atypical expenses. Certain allowances may be made to assist you.
