The Washington Student Achievement Council, College Access and Support Division is recruiting eligible school districts to join our application for the next Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP), which we will submit in spring 2017.
A simple mistake could cost you a scholarship. It is important to pay attention to every detail. Applicants need to know what is being asked and need to comply with these requirements. Common mistakes are preventable. Show students how scholarships are often scored. Have them read and score the submissions. Debrief and help students learn how to avoid common pitfalls.
