"The Magic Number Of Scholarships To Apply For"



The first question we usually get about scholarships is: How do I find them? Use the Free Scholarship Search.

The second question is: How many should I apply for?

Okay, the truth is there is no magic number of scholarships for which you should apply. However, there is a magical rule: Apply to as many scholarships as possible. The caveats are that you are, of course, limited by time, and you must be qualified for the awards. Within those two confines, go for it!

Some students think that they should select only a couple scholarships to apply for so they can focus their efforts on crafting the perfect applications for them. It is true that to have any hope of winning you need to turn in quality applications.

However, create a balance between the quality and quantity of your applications. Donít apply for 75 awards sending in the same application to each. You still need to customize your application according to the individual award.

At the same time, donít apply to one or two scholarships and spend four weeks building each application. Remember, the more scholarships you apply for, the more chances you have to win.
