To maximize your success in achieving the number of scholarships for the amounts you desire, it is important to dedicate time to this effort. While it may be potentially achievable to fund all or the majority of your degree expenses with scholarships, it is not an easy task. Therefore, UAT advisors recommend to:
- Start researching and planning in your junior year.
- Find scholarships you already qualify for to apply to first.
- Create a spreadsheet to track all scholarship details and activities.
- Find other scholarships that you can realistically take on activities or attributes to qualify.
