For instance, you don’t have strong references. Or, you might not have the best of work histories. Sometimes, these things are considered, but you need to outweigh them. The reviewers are also people, and if you sway them in one direction with a strong part of your application, you might just make them forget about your tarnished side. So, if you you don’t have solid references for Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation, then write an essay that is stellar. Essays are one of the best ways to look like a solid applicant for the simple fact that you can take just about as long as you want on them, and they are a window into the essence of you. If you boast a strong essay, but other parts of your application are lacking, you might just be able to squeak by the gatekeeper.

Sometimes, it is important to view scholarship searching like fishing. You need to throw your net out of the boat, and drag the dark, murky bottom of the river. Of course, when you start pulling in your nets, it might not seem like you have much, but there could be hundreds of fish on the other end. It takes patience, and a good knowledge of where the best parts of the river are. In the same way, searching for a scholarship like West Virginia Golf Association Grantname is going to take some patience, but there could be thousands and thousands of dollars waiting for you. Do keep in mind that the search is worth it. If you attempt to put your entire education on student loans, you will be paying them off for the next thirty four years. And in this economy, there’s no guarantee of a job afterwards. The best way to go is to get someone else like Greater Kanawha Valley Foundationname to pay for that education.
