Applying to everything

A photo of stephen27 stephen27
I don't have too many hours of volunteering (just over 72) but I'm still seeking awards. Do you thing simply applying to everything out there will lead to some sort of success? I don't think it really matters too much how my chances are. I'll take every oppertunitiy I can! :compress:

Yes, I think so haha! The more applications you put out there the more chances you have of winning. :) Boast about what you've done. Significance over amount of time done.

72 hours is a LOT compared to a lot of people out there.
I know a lot of people who just do 30 because they only need 30 to graduate.
It's definitely enough to win you some kind of scholarship, maybe not a big one, but something for sure.
Apply for EVERYTHING and ANYTHING that seems relevant to you and if you complete the requirements.
Most (although there are scholarships awarded to those SPECIALLY with 100+ hours for those keeners) scholarships don't specify how many hours your need, just proof of your dedication and effort.

You should apply to all the awards listen under "My Awards", it doesn't hurt to apply. I mean it's pretty much free money, right?

It is a good idea to apply to anywhere you can. It gives you a wider variety to choose from and also if you at a later date don't want to go to one place you have many more to choose.

Yes, you should absolutely apply for any scholarship that you think you're even remotely qualified for. The more applications you do the more chances you have of winning!

I'm too. I don't miss a chance to enter a contest or a chance to win even $500, everything counts.
I wish I could win all of my application, I'd be able to pay for the whole career in one go!

What I've never understood, is why universities and scholarhsips only take into account volunteer hours rather than the amount of hours some students work to fund their university!! I understand that being part of the community is a big deal and shows that the applicant is active in their society, but sometimes there's more to a teenager's life than just school. Most of the time, actually.

I'm also very nervous about applying for scholarships because I don't know if my volunteer hours will be enough compared to other people out there.. but I certainly am applying to essay writing ones because I know the more I apply to, the higher my chance of receiving at least 1. :S

Apply to everything! It's a good idea, I've heard of a guy winning a scholarship for something in a trade where the criteria to get the scholarship was designed for a girl.

Yes, the more you apply to, the better chance of winning something! But of course, make sure you apply well too.

And I think 72 is pretty good, like someone said earlier many people only have the minimum required 30. Keep volunteering and building up those hours though!

Yes sure if you apply to all the scholarships that you know you are eligible for. I'm also doing the same. This can increase the chances for the applicant to win at least something better than nothing since you put in so much work serving the community. 72 hours is quite a lot and you should be proud of your achievements.
But the research part of applying for scholarships and filling in the applications not to mention some require you to provide additional supporting documents such as essays, reference letter and transcripts are a lot of hassle. But in the end if you win something I guess all that work is worth it.
You're not alone. I'm sure lots of people out there are doing the same, like me, for example.
