Same advice as last year…You should complete your application before the board that makes you the most competitive. I would recommend you try to get in on one of the first two boards. Waiting till the deadline and being seen by just one board is rarely the best course of action. If you have a strong file you should be shooting to have your file complete by 1 October and reviewed by the first board.
In the coming weeks I’ll be posting the 2020 edition of how to get started, and I plan to put together a post that consolidates all the good information about the scholarship process I’ve written over the years. Hoping it will help more of you get board ready and receive offers.
And, if you are a guidance counselor, parent, or know someone who would be interested in one of these scholarships make sure to pass the word.
