Hopefully, by now you’ve applied to SUU. Just a reminder that you need to send in your official high school transcripts, your ACT/SAT score and make sure you have paid your application fee as well. All of these need to be turned in by March 1, 2015 if you want to be considered for a scholarship. And trust me, you want a scholarship if you can get one. They help out a ton for your schooling. I’m so glad I have one otherwise I’d be more poor than I all ready am.
Starting the next school year, SUU will also be willing to stack different scholarships you get! I wish they did that my first three years. If you don’t know what that is, if you get more than one scholarship you used to have to pick whatever one you wanted more. Now the school is willing to let you take both of them. So if you get one scholarship for $1,000 a semester, another one for $500 a semester, and maybe another one for $400 a semester, you don’t just have to pick one! You get all of them! So you’d have a total of $1,900 in scholarship money for a semester!
So if I were you, I’d go online and find all the scholarships I fit the requirements for and apply for them. They don’t even have to be super fancy scholarships. I’ve heard of scholarships for redheads, people with blue eyes, smart people, talented people, the list goes on and on. You could probably even find a scholarship for someone who loves Harry Potter. Wouldn’t that be magical? What have you got to lose applying for it? If you don’t get it, you might get another one; if you do, huzzah!
Scholarships do come with certain conditions though. Most of the time you have to be taking a certain amount of credits, have a certain GPA, etc. Now, I’m just taking a guess, but I think for the redhead scholarship, you’ll probably need red hair. So only apply for the scholarships you qualify for. If you don’t have blue eyes, you probably shouldn’t apply for the blue eye scholarship unless you can come up with a good argument why you still deserve it.
Remember to make sure you’ve sent in your official transcripts, your ACT/SAT scores and paid your application fee before March 1, 2015 to qualify for scholarships here at SUU! We want to help you out as much as we can, but we can’t do that if you didn’t send everything in to us. So send us everything we need and start applying for scholarships!!
