College Scholarship Q & A

Scholarship Q & A


Why do a few students seem to get so many scholarships?

Sometimes all a student needs is some help finding the scholarships for which they meet qualifications. Once they have a list and know how to find more, they are on a roll. The difference between the graduating student with lots of scholarships and the student without scholarships is that the student with scholarships worked really hard to get them...and they had help.


Why are students sometimes reluctant to apply for college $?

Finding scholarships is just half the battle.  Sometimes students will not apply for scholarships because they have to write an essay. We help students understand essay mechanics and help them choose the best thing for them to write about to compete for scholarships.


What scholarships should students seek?

Students should apply for scholarships that are advertised by their high school, community organizations and their college. There are also national scholarship competitions that students can enter. Students should compete for scholarships that are related to their strengths: academic, volunteer or talent. Rambo Research provides families with scholarship information and coaching for scholarship essay preparation.


What scholarships should students avoid?

Students should avoid any scholarship that asks for an application fee or more personal information than is requested by other scholarships. Students should also consider the amount of work that an application will require in relation to the potential payoff and academic workload that the student is carrying. Applications for which the workload is so large that it would jeopardize grades in school should be avoided.
