Small is the new big when it comes to submitting scholarship applications. If you are awarded 10 scholarships for $1,000 or one scholarship for $10,000, the net effect is the same – you don’t pay that $10,000 out of your pocket or in loans. Every scholarship for which you are eligible os worth applying for, because a bunch of small scholarships will add up to a big one.
More importantly, smaller scholarships tend to have fewer competitors than larger ones. Most people in their scholarship search try to apply for a few big awards and neglect the smaller ones. A 50% chance of winning is a bet you should definately take!
