College Tips – Scholarship Applications


Hi, my name’s Ben Huntington with Eastern Iowa
Community Colleges and we want to give you money. Every year students throw away
thousands of dollars simply by not applying for scholarships. We don’t want
you to be one of those students. People think that you have to be a 4.0 student
or LeBron James type athlete to ever be considered for a scholarship. That’s not
the case. And with Eastern Iowa Community Colleges our application basically
consists of three things. There is the personal information that we require of
students, so your name, address, high school that you attended, GPA, all that stuff
Stuff that you fill out job applications and college applications There’s an essay that we’re gonna have
you write about who you are and what your goals are while you’re with us. It’s a two
paragraph essay. Again what are your goals with Eastern Iowa Community Colleges and
why you do you feel you’re deserving of a scholarship? So that’s just knowing your
unique strengths and abilities. Thinga that we’re going to want to consider when deciding who
receives a scholarship. We also want 2 references and we want that to be
somebody outside of your friend and family circle. So your instructors, your
guidance counselors, coaches, pastors, employers, somebody who is able to be in tune
with those big picture academic and career goals they are setting for
yourselves. And always keep in mind if you need help with writing a scholarship
essay or filling out a scholarship application we’re happy to do that okay. So stop in on campus fill out your scholarship
app and hopefully we’re going to be able to save you a little bit of money during the
time woth Eastern Iowa Community Colleges
