Scholarship Advice/success stories

Hi there, I’m in tenth grade and I’m curious about how to apply for reputable scholarships. Is it wise for me to volunteer frequently? Which ones? Do I have to join the student government? Should I begin attending local events?

If at all possible, please share your experience with me.

Your school counselor is your secret weapon – they have all the info and can even point you to websites that match you with scholarships. Volunteering for a cause you care about (think animal shelter) is awesome for both you and your application. Local events show community spirit, and that’s a plus too. Get involved, apply early, apply often – that’s the key. Good luck, you’ve got this…
