College Scholarship Deadlines Get Easily Overlooked According To Experts
Due to the demanding process of college visitation, multiple choices, admission applications and essay writing, students tend to neglect the upcoming scholarship deadlines. According to Dee Cohen, a licensed social worker and owner of www.SocialWorkPrograms.org , “There are so many tasks involved in applying to college, that it’s easy for scholarship deadlines to get forgotten. I receive e-mails daily from blog readers upset about losing out on winning an award for this very reason.”
Many college awards require a personal essay or letter of recommendation from a teacher or mentor. This can take some time to obtain, so time management is essential. Cohen suggests that people keep a spreadsheet of the deadlines for both school admissions as well as college scholarship application dates. It can be overwhelming without writing up a schedule.
A number of scholarship awards are due within the month of January. The National Eagle Scout Association offers over 150 monetary gifts for Eagle Scouts. The awards differ starting at $1,000 all the way to close to fifty thousand dollars. This can be applied to tuition, living expenses and books. It is only eligible for applicants attending four-year college that offers bachelor’s degrees or higher.
The deadline to the forms in to NESA is January 31, 2011.
The New York Water Environment Assoc. or NYWEA is offering six $1,500 rewards. Two rewards will be given to children of NYWEA members. Two more awards will be given to those enrolled at a college that has a NYWEA student chapter. The last two awards will go to high school students who are enrolling in a four year college majoring in an environmental program. The deadline to apply for this award is January 20, 2011.
The Washington Crossing Foundation offers a reward to high school seniors who plan to have a career in government service. An essay and letter of recommendation from the principal or guidance counselor is required with the application. The deadline to be eligible for this award is January 14, 2011.
At www.socialworkprograms.org issues areas of anxiety as well as various types of scholarships are discussed. Cohen said: “ Both my social work clients as well as blog readers have expressed a great deal of concern about dealing with the process of college applications. It can be very intimidating" Plan ahead for the awards that will best fit you and get everything returned in plenty of time before the deadline to avoid frustration.
