One of the very best ways to prepare for scholarship applications is to prepare a personal resume.
A personal resume would include information about your academic achievements, school activity involvement, extracurricular involvement, community service, church activities, work experience and any other relevant experiences.
By preparing such a resume you will be ready to meet any application challenge. Resumes are also extremely helpful to selection committees as they work to choose the most qualified students for their awards.
Another great way to prepare is to identify teachers, counselors or community members who you would approach concerning a letter of recommendation.
Many teachers will be writing multiple letters, so allow them plenty of time to prepare a quality letter for you.
