Here are three words that will definitely help you win scholarships: Apply. Apply. Apply. 

Even if you think you won’t win the scholarship award, guess what? You should still apply. If you’re concerned about too many other people applying, guess what? You should still apply. If you have any worries about you not winning a particular scholarship that you apply for, well…. you should still apply! You never really know what the outcome will be and if you don’t apply it’s impossible to win.

It is true that everyone is competing for scholarships and it is a competitive place. There are also easy scholarships to win. Wayne Gretzky arguably the best hockey player to ever play the game said “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” Michael Jordan, arguably the best basketball player to ever play the game said “I’ve failed over and over and over again and that is why I succeed.” There you have it, two of the greats who believe in going for it no matter what and not letting a silly thing like the potential of missing or not succeeding immediately stop them from trying.

We all have opportunities that we’re presented with. Whether those opportunities come to be is a different story. However, we at Scholly can say without a doubt that you should always try and put your best foot forward before you convince yourself that it won’t happen. There’s nothing like looking back on an experience and knowing you took the leap to advance yourself forward. Apply for those scholarships for college today! That is one of the best ways to win scholarships.
