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.
Dr. Cristina Gaeta presented this topic at the Washington State GEAR UP Year 6 Planning Workshops. It featured an overview of how to develop a college and career binder.
For this workshop, please remember to bring a laptop/tablet, your Year 6 plan, and the binder that you received last spring.
