Scholarship fear is real because of our uncertainty regarding our performance.

The fear of the unknown can often paralyze us or manifest in ways that are unhealthy.

  • We don’t know where to look to find scholarships we’re eligible for.
  • We don’t know if we wrote our essay in a way that connected with the committee.
  • We don’t know why we weren’t selected as the winner.

Finding and applying for scholarships is full of unknowns. It comes with the territory.


If you continue to operate above mediocrity…YOU WILL BE A SCHOLARSHIP WINNER!

  1. Surround yourself with a supportive environment.
  2. Stay committed to your scholarship goals regardless of what others say.
  3. Systemize your scholarship learning to create a well-oiled machine.

It’s that easy. It’s that complicated.

However, you are at the center of your scholarship success. How you operate influences everything.
