Carefully read the information for each scholarship.
Copies of the forms are available in Mrs. Bradford's room while I'm at the FCCLA conference. After that, they will be moved to the library.
Several of these scholarships ask for a "Packet". A Packet includes:
- Cover Page - the one with your picture and the name of the scholarship
- Cover Letter - This is one page about yourself. Use some specific information. You are all unique, give the committee a reason to remember you.
- Resume - Again, ONE page. Make is clear and concise. Easy to read.
- Letters of Recommendation - Some ask for two others for three. Pay attention to what they want.
- Transcript - The front office or I can print one for you
WATCH FOR DUE DATES. THEY ARE NOT ALL THE SAME. If it's late, all your hard work is wasted.
