2 Comments on “Scholarship Saturday – June 27, 2020

  1. Hi Jessica, Thanks so much for providing a list of such great scholarship opportunities!
    I was wondering if you ever get any feedback from scholarship winners?
    I am encouraging my daughters to fill out many scholarships…and thought showing them some success stories might make it all the more worth it.
    Thank you!

    • Hello!

      I am an incoming college freshman and I’ve been using this website since my junior year in high school. I’ve probably applied to over 50 scholarships and so far, I’ve won two! My advice to your daughter is to keep applying, always ask someone to read your essays, and practice writing about yourself! I used to struggle with writing essays about myself, but the more scholarships I applied for, the stronger writer I became.

      I hope this helps and good luck to your daughter!
