Local Scholarship Process

2018  Local Scholarship Process

 

Dear Applicant:

Attached is a copy of the local scholarship application.  Bronson Local Scholarship Application 2018   Below are a few some helpful, hints, reminders, directions that should make this whole process easier for you.

  1. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO DO THESE.
  2. Ask someone to proof them before you make copies
  3. Ask recommenders for their recommendations early.
  4. Make sure you make a copy of the application for each of the Bronson Local scholarships for which you wish to apply.  If you submit one application you will be applying for only one scholarship.  Make sure you label each application.
  5. Follow the scholarship specific directions.  If a scholarship asks for a handwritten essay include it.  If you do not follow specific directions your application will automatically be eliminated because you did not follow the directions.
  6. File your FAFSA
  7. Write a positive personal statement-most all of us have had to overcome something.  Make sure your statement says that you have set goals and can achieve them.
  8. Your application should be neat-If a scholarship committee has to read 100 applications don’t you think committee members will spend more time on the ones that are easier to read?
  9. YOU CAN DO THIS!
  10. The Branch Co. Community Foundation has many other scholarships.  To apply for these please go to their website at www.brcofoundation.org.   Many of the biggest scholarships are only available here:  (Juhl Scholarship, Hensley Scholarship, Salisbury and the Shackleton Family Scholarship.)
  11. Be mindful of all deadlines.
