Scholarships and awards are an excellent way of supplementing your financial resources and gaining recognition for your achievements. A select group of students who demonstrate academic excellence will be able to significantly manage their budget using scholarship funding. It does take some effort and perseverance to apply for a scholarship. Many times applying for one scholarship is not enough! Spending time browsing search engines, preparing your essays or personal profiles and collecting valuable references can be a worthwhile personal and financial investment.
