Researching Other Scholarships
In addition to the information and application contained in this package, The Prayer Institute would like to offer the following steps for researching and obtaining scholarships, in general. There are vast opportunities for scholarships; therefore, we encourage you to take advantage of the many ways that you can be blessed through financial assistance for your education.
- See your high school counselor for information about scholarships that may be offered to your graduating class. Many organizations seek student recommendations for scholarships through the school counselor.
- Check your public and school libraries for publications containing scholarship information.
- Approach prospective donors directly for information on scholarships they offer. Major corporations, fraternal organizations, community civic organizations, and other groups often provide assistance to graduating students, employees, members, and their children.
- Compose and keep available a short resumé reflecting your personal, educational, and career goals, which you can send to prospective donors. Include with your resumé your high school transcript, letters of recommendation, and additional information about your academic achievements, leadership potential, and extracurricular activities.
- Write to the university, addressing the specific department of your intended major, for the criteria of scholarships for that field. Universities and colleges can refer you to organizations that offer scholarships for prospective students of certain majors.
- Check the Outreach Youth Ministry Blog at Windsor Village United Methodist Church to stay connected with other scholarship opportunities.
