You might not think the scholarships want you to win, but our team at Scholly does. Here’s the Major Key of the day; keep a list. Whatever stage of life you’re in right now, whether that’s in high school or college; you should keep running lists of your involvements. Make sure that you write down all of the activities, groups, and organizations that you are a part of. Most importantly, be sure to write down exactly what you did and why it was meaningful to you.

Scholarship applications often times ask for your past experiences or for you to reflect on specific moments. When you’re applying to win scholarship awards, it is important that you can clearly communicate the nature of your experiences. Keeping lists will make this process much easier and helps you recall those experiences in significant ways.

Just like you have a scholarship database on your Scholly app, you should keep a life database of your involvement throughout school. You will thank yourself later for how well it prepares you to win scholarships. So the next time you volunteer at that soup kitchen, tutor a friend, intern at an accounting firm, or help young children paint; write it down! Major scholarship key here. As DJ Khaled would say, “another one.”
