Learn how to win college money from Marianne Ragins, $400,000 scholarship winner!

When are most scholarship deadlines?
Excerpt from “A Burning Question Sections” of Winning Scholarships for College
        For the largest scholarship programs awarding the most money – for example, $20,000, $40,000, and up – the deadlines will occur early in your senior year. This means that you should be prepared to start submitting applications in September, October, November, and December of your senior year.
        If you wait until March, April, May, or later, the scholarship amounts start to get smaller, and by the end of spring most deadlines will have passed except for some small community-based programs and online promotional scholarship giveaways and sweepstakes.

Excerpt from College Survival & Success Skills 101
Developing Good Study Habits
for College and High School Students


In order to make the best grades so you can earn a higher GPA, you need to have good study habits. One of the first things you should do is learn your own study rhythm. How? Consider the following:
  • What environment is best for you? Is it in your bed with music blaring, at a quiet library sitting at a table, or lying in the grass at a park?
  • What time of day do you get the best ideas or understand the material you read more easily than at any other? Is it late night, early morning, mid-day, or some other time?
  • Does being hungry interrupt your thinking? Do you constantly need snacks or does it matter?
  • Do you really perform best at the last minute? Many students think they do but quite often when they really assess whether they could have done better, that’s not the case.

See College Survival & Success Skills 101 for more about developing good study habits.
