How To Win A Scholarship?
*Our response is relevant to all situations.
--Isaac Black, editor
Q: I am a pre-med student in my junior year. Do you know
of any sites that list scholarships for pre-med students of color?
Any leads will be appreciated.
A: Here's a tip! For a pre-med student with a strong record
there is absolutely no need to limit yourself to searching
for "scholarships for pre-med students of color." In fact,
that's a tactical mistake. You would be better off attacking a
general scholarship list (any major) because there are far
more of those scholarships available. Not only that, strong
pre-med students of color or otherwise, you can win those
scholarships, A, B, C.
In the "Black Excel African American Student's College
Guide," which I wrote, I explain the "real deal," if you know
what I mean. You'll learn what to do, and why. I tell you
how to approach the scholarship sweepstakes, period,
step by step.
Many of our students mistakenly target a specific major,
and only that. In a nutshell, they narrow their pool of
money opportunities. Then, when they can't find that
pre-med, pre-law, engineering, chess, art scholarship
to apply for they give up. Or they apply, and they
discover that those high-powered specific scholarship
lists attract the strongest competition. I can tell you
that they are the hardest to win. Hey, you go after the
"gems," but you've got to strategize, and use all the
smarts you have when you review possibilities.
There are, really, thousands upon thousands of
scholarships for good and talented students...and that's
your gold mine!! Start applying to those...with all
the skill, talent, and energy you can muster.
Again, whatever you do, don't overlook look those
"all majors" lists. Good luck and best wishes.
