And the Oscar for Best Actor goes to....Your Kid!

Posted on February 23, 2015 at 10:03 AM
Getting a part in a movie requires preparation and "getting into" the role. Actors often spend months preparing to successfully portray a character.

Getting scholarships requires that a student look and act like the type of student that the scholarship donor or foundation seeks. Many scholarship donors seek involved and motivated students.

A great way to prepare for a successful application experience for scholarships would be to imagine casting a movie with a role for an involved and motivated student. Imagine what that student would be like and start to look at your kid and think of ways that he or she qualifies. If you find a few things that need work, encourage them to get busy.

The top 5 things you can encourage in your kids to help them win scholarships are:
  • volunteering in school and the community
  • the best dedication to classwork possible
  • a positive public image in social media
  • preparing for standardized tests
  • practice writing their story for future scholarship essays

Students who win scholarships usually work at winning scholarships. Your kid is a winner, all that is needed is the right part (scholarship) and the right preparation. Lights, camera....scholarship!
