You have exactly two weeks until your scholarship is due. Make sure your scholarship is already in the mail on October 1st. There are a very large number of applicants every year, and applications that arrive late are not considered. So put your application in the mail as soon as possible, but before you do answer these questions:
• Have you revised your essay several different ways?
• Have you addressed every point in the essay prompt?
• Have you signed in ink the hard copy of your essay?
• Have you gone through the check list and included every piece?
Once you answer yes to all these questions, put everything in a manila envelope, mail it, and then pat yourself on the back. Congratulations! Completing a scholarship application can be an arduous and frightening process, but you succeeded!
