College prices are at an all-time high, and students are finding it harder and harder to be able to pay the bills. Besides getting a job, another way to get money for your education is through scholarships. The due date for most of the Leipsic scholarships is April 18th. A lot of the scholarships through Leipsic ask for the same information such as grade point average, ACT score, future goals, and college plans. After you have filled out this information for one scholarship, you can copy and paste it to save time on other scholarships. Using information from other scholarships allows you to complete scholarships more efficiently. Lindsey Rieman, pictured above looking at online scholarship information, said that this is the process that she uses to get her scholarships done on time.
Most scholarships also ask for an official transcript. I asked Mrs. Recker to email me a copy of my transcript so that I could print it off when I need it. However for a transcript to be considered official, it must be stamped by the office. Letters of recommendation are also a big part of scholarships. You should have already asked all of the people that you need letters from. Letters of recommendation can also be saved on your Google drive and printed off when needed. Make sure that scholarships are sent out before the due date. The organizations that are offering the scholarships want your materials before or on the due date. Sending it on the date will not allow enough time for the organization to receive for scholarship. Good luck with all the scholarships that you apply for this year.
