What are some application tips?

1. Start Early

A great scholarship essay is not written overnight! Start early and allow time to work on your responses.

2. Proofread, Proofread, Proofread

You want your scholarship essay to stand out for its great content, not the grammatical errors. Ask a parent, friend, or professor to proofread your application before submitting.

3. Personalize the Response

Don’t make your essay a resume. Use the opportunity to share something about who you are, which is far more memorable.

4. Build on your Accomplishments

Remember that you are competing against a similar pool of applicants. Use the essay question as a way to prove to the scholarship committee that you are the worthiest applicant for the award.

How will I know if I’m selected as a recipient?

All applicants, recipients, and non-recipients will be notified of their status within eight weeks of the closing date.

When do scholarships open? Close?

NSCS scholarships open throughout the year, so make sure to check the scholarship page often, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates, too! Generally our scholarships are open for two months, but don’t wait until the last minute to apply.

What are the eligibility requirements to apply?

We have two main eligibility requirements for our scholarships:

1.  You must be an NSCS member (current or alumni)

2.  You must have at least a 3.0 GPA (if undergrad)
