You just got into your dream school, and you couldn’t be more excited. College is a great experience for making lifelong friends, going through new experiences, and beginning your career path. As you start though, you realize it all comes with a price. Between tuition, dorm life, meal plans, textbooks, and all the shopping and packing beforehand, the expenses certainly add up. Here at Faviana, we want to make your finances one less worry so you can stay focused on school and work. This article contains our information on our very own essay contest, along with other ways to apply for scholarships to help you pay!
Celebrate Yourself Essay Contest
At Faviana, our mission is: “To help women feel good and celebrate themselves!” Therefore, we allow you take this opportunity to explain the ways in which you celebrate yourself. The Faviana Foundation essay contest consists of choosing from one of three prompts listed on our website, and then illustrating the ways you interpret our mission statement. These include: (1) How do you celebrate yourself as an American. (2) How do you celebrate yourself as a woman. (3) How do you celebrate yourself as a leader. From here, you have the option to either email a written essay with a minimum of 1,000 words, or submit a visual essay (video) of at least 1 minute long. The essays received are judged by the Faviana staff, and the 1st place winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship to college in addition to the dream prom dress of her choice. This is not only a great chance to receive money to help pay for your school, but it’s a great way to truly express yourself!
Search The Web to Apply for Scholarships
The only way to have a shot at winning scholarships is to apply for scholarships. And the easiest way to apply for scholarships is right at your fingertips on your computer. You want to search trustworthy websites and apply often to increase your chances of receiving one. Additionally, you want to make sure you’re eligible for the scholarship(s) you decide on, along with meeting all the required criteria and deadlines. Scholarships.com is a great site to browse through, offering helpful tips and an endless supply of scholarships waiting for you. Some take as little as 5 minutes to fill out, so it’s no excuse not to try a little each day. I mean, who can deny fast and easy money for school?
Ask For Help to Apply for Scholarships
Though you can certainly find and apply for scholarships on your own, it doesn’t hurt to use some local people to help you as well. You can contact the financial aid office at the school you attend, ask your old high school counselor, talk to your employer, or visit your library’s reference section either online or at the public one. Other reliable sources include your state grant agency, foundations, community organizations, local businesses, and civic groups. The possibilities are endless to ensure you receive legitimate scholarship offers and avoid any scams. Start as early as today and see how much money you will receive!
