Make Your Scholarship Renewable
Premium members on Scholarship Owl get the benefits of our autosubmission system, which automatically applies them to renewable scholarships. If you plan on offering awards every semester or even every month, making your award renewable will maximize your applicants and keep people interested in your organization.
Choose Your Requirements Wisely
Think about what really matters most in your winning applicant. Good grades and perfect school attendance may not be the most important requirements to look for. Don't make your listing so specific that no one applies. Choose the values that best reflect your organization as a whole, and use those to guide your selection process.
Explain Your Organization's Goals
In your listing, briefly describe your organization's core values so applicants can tailor their essays to meet your needs. This will help students write more effective, powerful essays that will speak to you directly. It will also ensure that the perfect candidates apply each and every time.
Pick a Good Deadline
Students often look for scholarships toward the end of a school semester as they begin preparing for the months to come. Set your scholarship deadlines in April-March or November-December to get the most applicants possible. Keep your listings up for several months so you can reach out to as many candidates as you can.
Keep Your Listings Concise
College students have to read pages of information every single day. When it comes time to apply for scholarships, they just want to scan through the options and find the ones that work best for them. Keep your scholarship listings concise so applicants can scan and assess them quickly.
Don't Be Afraid of Essays!
In a recent Scholarship Owl survey, 80% of respondents said they would definitely send more essays if it helped them apply to more scholarships. As long as the funding is available, people will willingly write essays to earn it. Don't be afraid to create a custom essay prompt if it helps you identify the best candidate for your award.
