Between now and January, the majority of scholarships will be due--especially the high dollar ones. Where should you start? I tell students to start this way-- 1) Get a calendar and mark down specific scholarships you qualify for. (For example, if you have had adversitites, the Horacio Alger Scholarship is due October 25th). Here is the link: HORACIO ALGER SCHOLARSHIP. GET STARTED NOW, since there is a part I have to complete AFTER you do yours.
2) Use your story on multiple applications. The Horacio Alger and Smith have a similar question, as does the AAEOPP and SAEOPP Survivor Scholarships. Once you do the hard part--writing it down--, you can let me edit it (and then you can use parts of it again).
The University of Montevallo TRIO Upward Bound Programs are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Math and Science grant from the U.S. Department of Education in the amound of $263.936.00 per year for the next five years. This grant will allow us to serve an additional sixty (60) students from Bibb, Chilton, and Shelby counties.
TRIO Upward Bound Math and Science program is designed to strengthen the math
and science skills of participating students. The goal of the program is to help students
recognize and develop their potential to excel in math and science, and to
encourage them to pursue postsecondary degrees in related fields of study, and ultimately
move on to careers in math and science professions.
program will offer a six week summer residential program with intensive math
and science training and skill development; year-round counseling and
advisement; exposure to faculty members who conduct research in mathematics and
the science; computer training; and student-involved scientific research under
the guidance of faculty members and graduate students, who are serving as
fall we will offer a one-time open enrollment for students in grades 9-12. Students must have at least a 2.5 grade point
