Apply for any scholarship for which you think you may be eligible, advises Cynthia Hudok, Director of Financial Aid and Scholarships for Fairmont State University.
“Don’t limit yourself,” she said. “You just apply and go for it and put your name out there.”
Hudok said there are two keys to a successful scholarship application: apply early and make sure all of your information is filled out correctly.
“So many times we receive an application that is not complete and then we can’t award the students, and that is a situation we would like to avoid,” she said.
