Narrowing Your Search
Given the multitude of opportunities out there, it can be helpful to narrow your search criteria. Make a list of several keywords that describe you. These could include your academic field(s) of study, interests, future goals, and identities (e.g., LGBTQ+, gender, race/ethnicity). This will give you a broad set of criteria to use in your initial searches. You’ll find that there are opportunities geared toward applicants with specific majors, academic interests, future goals and identities (e.g., LGBTQ+, gender, race/ethnicity).
Because new opportunities arise throughout the year, you’ll want to set aside time to search for opportunities regularly (e.g., an hour on the first Saturday of each month).
Keeping Track of Opportunities
Finding scholarships takes a lot of work. As you find opportunities, keep track of your searches (the keywords, terms and databases you used) to make repeat searches easier.
You may want to use a spreadsheet or project management program to keep track of the opportunities you identify. Include on your list opportunities you aren’t yet eligible for but may want to pursue in the future and those whose deadline for this year has already passed. Doing this will help you develop both a short- and long-term plan for applying for opportunities.
