Recent scholarship winner, Ms. Beata S. sure knows a thing or two about researching and applying for scholarships. After all, she’s taking home $1,000 to help her pursue her higher ed dreams.
So, we asked her some questions about herself and her college and scholarship search experience.
Here’s what Beata shared:
What is your secret to finding and applying for scholarships?
There is no secret trick to applying for scholarships. Use a great scholarship search engine such as Cappex and apply for as many scholarships as you can. Do not be shy to tell the scholarship committee about all the great things you have done. The applications may seem time consuming, but the hard work is worth it when you are given the opportunity to attend college and pursue a degree you love.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I grow up, I want to be a chemical engineer. I love all the possibilities the field presents, and I look forward to finding new and innovative ways to solve real-world problems.
Name something you just could not live without.
I cannot live without my family. They ignited my desire to learn and explore that has led to countless opportunities. I am very thankful for all that they have done for me.
If you could offer a younger student one piece of advice for the college search, what would you say?
Be persistent. The college search may seem daunting at first. But, if you know what you want, then you will figure out a way to make it happen.
